CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — About 200 stakeholders attended the Flag and Heraldic Code Seminar of the city government of San Fernando.

Attendees include government employees, teachers, boy and girl scouts and representatives from the business sector.

“The Flag and Heraldic Code also known as Republic Act 8491 is an act prescribing the code of the national flag, anthem, motto, coat-of-arms and other heraldic items and devices of the Philippines,” City Tourism Officer Ma. Lourdes Carmella Jade Pangilinan said.

This is in line with the observance of National Flag Days from May 28 to June 12 and National Heritage Month this May.

Teodoro Atienza from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines informed the participants of correct orientation of the Philippine flag, and correct locations where the flag should be placed.

“Our flag is unique because it is reversible according to situations: that is, in times of peace and stability, Blue should be on top; Red should be over Blue during war,” he explained. (CLJD/CJFV-PIA 3)
