THE PHILIPPINE FLAG
Our flag stands for our country. Our flag has four colors. They
are red, white, bule and yellow. Red stands for bravery, white
for purity and blue for peace. Our flag has three stars and a
sun. The three stars stand for Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The sun stands for freedom and its eight rays stand for the
eight provinces that revolted against the Spaniards.
