Wave the Philippine flag on your blog!

Filipino Pride - S3isSixFlags

May 28 is National Flag Day, which is when the Philippine flag was raised for the first time in 1898 (in the Battle of Alapan, Imus, Cavite). Beginning this day until June 12, which is our Independence Day, everyone is encouraged to display the Philippine flag in front of our homes, schools, offices, and other places. This period is called National Flag Days.

Here’s an idea: why not wave the National Flag on your blog?

Of course the easiest way is to write a post about the Philippine flag and related topics like Independence Day. Just talking about it is enough to foster our sense of nationhood. You could take a photo of the flag in front of your house or on the street on the way to work. It doesn’t even have to be a million-peso shot, your cameraphone will do.

But if you want a more permanent sign of Pinoy pride, WordPress bloggers will know that sidebar widgets make this easy. Just pick the text widget and insert the HTML code for the image you want to display.
