The eight rays of the sun represent eight regions which revolted first in the Philippine revolution against the Spanish government in 1896. The white colour represents liberty, equality, and fraternity, while the white, blue and red colours were chosen to honour and commemorate the help from the U.S.A. against Spain during the Philippine revolution (although later there was a war between the Philippine freedom movement and American troops when the U.S.A. only replaced Spain as the colonial power in the Philippines in 1900).
