Fernando made the call as he, along with Vice Governor-elect Alex C. Castro, graced the program marking the 124th anniversary of the Philippine National Flag on Saturday, May 28.

Fernando said the “red, white, and blue” banner will always serve as a beacon for freedom and a symbol of the sovereignty of a proud patriotic nation and the people. It inspired war veterans not only in Bulacan but in the entire country.
