PHILIPPINES INDEPENDENCE DAY




Filipino Independence Day celebrates the Philippines liberation from foreign powers. On July 4, 1946, the Philippines gained independence from the USA. However, the current date celebrated is June 12, which is the day of the declaration of independence by General Emilio Aguinaldo in 1896. This date was established by former Philippines president, Diosdado Macapagal, to remember Filipino heroes of the revolution.

Full independence was granted to the Republic of the Philippines in 1946 by the US.

Independence Day in the Philippines was originally celebrated on the 4th of July to match the U.S. In 1962 however, President Diosdado Macapagal declared June 12th Independence Day instead to commemorate the anniversary of the end of Spanish rule in the country. The Philippines is the 3rd largest English speaking country in the world.
