Philippine Centennial Celebration

    Rekindling the Filipino Spirit

    What's new?

    In 1998, the Philippines celebrated its centenary year as an independent nation. In 1999, we celebrate one hundred years of the Philippine Republic, the first constitutional democracy in Asia.

    We celebrate nearly four centuries of struggle for nationhood culminating in the Philippine Revolution of 1896, the raising of the Philippine flag on May 28, 1898 and the Filipino Declaration of Independence on June 12, 1898, and the January 23, 1899 birth of the Philippine Republic.

    The flag which Mrs. Agoncillo made in Hongkong was taken to the Philippines by General Aguinaldo aboard the ship McCullough. After the Battle of Alapan in Imus Cavite, this flag was first unfurled by Gen. Aguinaldo at the Teatro Caviteño in Cavite Nuevo ( now Cavite City ) on May 28, 1898 before victorious Filipino revolutionaries. It was witnessed by 270 captured Spanish marines, plus officers and men of the U.S. Asiatic Squadron under Admiral George Dewey.

    We enjoin all to rekindle the Filipinos spirit by looking back at the proudest moments in Philippine history, reliving the crisis moments of the republic before falling under the yoke of new conquerors.

    Traverse the road map of century-old events that led to the events of 1898 and 1899. Experience the agitation that led to the revolution.

    Relive the first shots of the revolt that aroused the passions of the Filipino people.

    Let us cherish the finest moments of the Filipino! Let the Filipino Spirit kindled by the Philippine Centennial burn in our hearts!

    Viva the Philippine Republic! Viva the Filipino!
