PILIPINAS KONG MAHAL
"my beloved philippines"
Pilipinas kong mahal is an exploration of my identity as a Filipino. I am inspired by the idea of
“Flag Ceremony,” where it has become part of my everyday life as a Filipino citizen for the last
15 years. The Flag Ceremony has reminded us of who we are as Filipino. It has become the
symbol of our country's love and honours our fallen soldiers and people who fought for our
freedom and democracy. We are taught to take pride every time we sing and speak each
element. But It has been five years since the last time I recall doing this. How would someone
who lives in a different country and at the same time are subjected to give up his Filipino
citizenship can uphold his patriotism to the Philippines.
