The Centennial of Philippine
Independence is the milestone that shall be the celebration of our
glorious past and future; the emancipation of the Filipino from the tyranny of colonialism and his
transformation into a citizen not only of an independent and proud nation but of the world as well.
The Philippine Centennial
represents our history, our struggle and our solidarity as a people.
It tells the story of the birth and growth of the Filipino race. It serves as a reminder of our moral
duty to perpetuate the inherent nobility, wealth and strength of our heritage.
