Today in Philippine History: The Philippine Flag Becomes the Official Flag

MARCH 26, 1920
The Philippine Legislature passed Act No. 2928 making the Philippine Flag as the official flag of the Philippine Islands and to be flown next to the American Flag. The flag’s Cuban blue and red were changed with the American colors. This act repealed the Flag Law (Act No. 1696) passed on September 6, 1907, which banned the Philippine Flag or any nationalist flags, banners or symbols, particularly those identified with the Katipunan from being waved in any public place.
