PILIPINAS KONG MAHAL

( Engl. My Beloved Philippines )

Pilipinas kong mahal is an exploration of my identity as a Filipino. I am inspired by the idea of the “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 uphold his patriotism to the Philippines
