Google Doodle: Philippine Independence Day


Little Info:
In the Republic of the PhilippinesIndependence Day (FilipinoAraw ng Kasarinlan; also Araw ng Kalayaan, lit. “Day of Freedom”) is an annual national holiday observed on 12 June, commemorating the Philippine Declaration of Independencefrom Spain on 12 June 1898. It is the country’s National Day.

4 July (the date intentionally chosen by the United States) was observed in the Philippines as Independence Day until 1962. On 12 May 1962, President Diosdado Macapagal issued Presidential Proclamation No. 28, which declared Tuesday, 12 June a special public holiday throughout the Philippines, “… in commemoration of our people’s declaration of their inherent and inalienable right to freedom and independence.[2]” On 4 August 1964, Republic Act No. 4166 renamed the 4 July holiday as “Philippine Republic Day”, proclaimed 12 June as “Philippine Independence Day”, and enjoined all citizens of the Philippines to observe the latter with befitting rites.[3]

Prior to 1964, 12 June had been observed as Flag Day, which was moved to 28 May (the date the Philippine Flag was first flown in battle). [ref. wikipedia]
