Structure of the flag

The center of the triangle holds a golden sun, which is surrounded by eight principal rays. Each beam consists of three individual rays again. At each corner of the triangle, also a five-pointed gold star is placed. Each star is designed so that one of the prongs on the top right corner shows where it is located.

Das weiße Dreieck symbolisiert Frieden und Reinheit. Die acht Strahlen der Sonne symbolisieren die acht Provinzen der Phillipinen, welche sich gegen die spanischen Kolonialherren aufbäumten. Die drei Sterne repräsentieren die drei Gebiete Luzon, Mindanao und Visayas. Das blaue Band symbolisiert den Patriotismus. Das rote Band der Flagge symbolisiert die Tapferkeit des Volkes.
