Philippine Flag Symbolism

Let's be honest now.  How many of you did not know behind the symbols of our national flag?  Just so you know, it is a fact that everybody lies.  Anyway, probably you are wondering why I am posting in such a nationalistic tone when independence day was almost three months behind?  Well, that makes us both.  A thought just struck me when I saw the commercial segment of Juan Time in discovery channel.

Unfortunately, I could not find the video online (for now). Anyway, here's a simple infographic on the meanings of the different symbols in our flag. Image and information taken from Wikipedia. You can find a more detailed version here.
