Event Details

This regular national holiday is celebrated on the last Monday in August. It is known in the Philippines as ‘Araw ng mga Bayani’.  It is a day to commemorate the Philippines’ national heroes.

The date chosen is intended to mark the ‘Cry of Pugad Lawin’ in 1896, which was the first act of insurrection against the Spanish colonisers by the Katipunan, a hitherto secret Filipino revolutionary movement. This is seen as the start of the Philippine revolution and movement towards independence.

The day is marked by parades and the laying of wreaths to honour those who lost their lives in the pursuit of the Philippine nation.
