Personnel from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines did a flag-raising rehearsal at the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite a day before (Friday) the country’s observance of its 123rd Independence Day, today, Saturday 12 June 2021. The Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine is a national shrine located in Kawit, Cavite in the Philippines, where the Philippine Declaration of Independence from Spain was declared on June 12, 1898. To commemorate the event, now known as Araw ng Kalayaan or Independence Day, a national holiday, the Philippine flag is raised here by top government officials on June 12 each year. The house is now a museum.
