The Philippine national flag is a horizontal bicolor flag with equal stripes of royal blue and fiery red. It has a white, equilateral triangle on the hoist that represents liberty, equality, and brotherhood. A golden-yellow sun with eight major beams, each symbolizing a province, sits in the center of the triangle. A five-pointed golden-yellow star represents one of the country's three main island groups: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, and is located at each vertex of the triangle.
The Philippine flag is distinguished by its use to denote a state of war, which is accomplished by flipping the flag upside-down so that the red band is on top. This element was added to the flag to help distinguish it from the flag of a neutral country. The flag is flown at many national and official occasions, and it is displayed in most public buildings, as well as by the Armed Forces and the National Police of the Philippines. On October 17, 1895, the flag's design was formally adopted.
