125th Anniversary of Philippines Independence

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. led the nationwide commemoration of the 125th Anniversary of Philippine Independence and Nationhood in a flag raising and wreath-laying ceremony at the Rizal Park Monument in the City of Manila.

This year’s Independence Day commemoration centers on the theme, ‘Kalayaan. Kinabukasan. Kasaysayan.’  According to the NHCP, it ‘gives focus on the freedom that our forebearers struggled for towards the future that they dreamed for the country and the history that we seek to remember and honor them with.’

In a written statement, President Marcos Jr. conveyed that today’s occasion stands as a solid testament of the Filipino people’s constant display of solidarity in fighting for the nation’s freedom that transcends generations.

“This historic day confirmed what our forebears have religiously kept in their hearts: that we are the inheritors of the glorious heroism and nobility that our ancestors have demonstrated throughout our long and storied history,” he stated.

The Chief Executive urged the nation to continue upholding courage and assert liberty day by day, noting that Filipinos should always pursue excellence and integrity with the knowledge and freedom that our predecessors strived for. 

Different activities and events have been organized in cooperation with various government agencies in celebrating the nation’s independence.  These include exhibits, concerts, job fairs as well as the Parada ng Kalayaan at the Quirino Grandstand.
