In 1898, during the Spanish-American War, Filipinos established the basic flag
in use today; it was officially adopted in 1936. The white triangle is for liberty.
The golden sun and stars are for the three main areas of the Philippines:
the Visayan Islands, Luzon, and Mindanao. The red color is for courage and
the blue color is for sacrifice.
Major responsibility for revitalization of PHC will fall on nurses and other such as CHW.
