LGU-Bolinao celebrates National Flag Day
28 May 2022
The Local Government Unit of Bolinao under the dynamic leadership of Municipal Mayor Hon. Alfonso F. Celeste MD with its Sangguniang Bayan chaired by Municipal Vice Mayor Hon. Richard C. Celeste and all its attached departments along with the national agencies spearheaded the conduct of the National Simultaneous raising of the Philippine Flag in honor of the National Flag Day earlier today, May 28, 2022.
Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 374, this serves as a commemoration of the symbol of national sovereignty and solidarity which was first unfurled during the victory in the battle of Alapan, Imus, Cavite in 1898. Additional to reminding the public servants the significance of giving respect to the emblem of Filipinos' unity and power, this nationalistic activity was also taken as an opportunity by Mayor Alfonso Celeste to introduce the new PNP Chief, PLTCOL Resty S. Santos, OIC who will serve as one of the guides towards a peaceful and unity promoting municipality.
As to this, may this day be a reminder to raise and give honor to the symbol that binds the Filipino together. May we continue embodying nationalistic and patriotic spirit. Long live the Philippines!
