What is the meaning of 3 stars in Philippine flag?
Contrary to common belief, the 3 stars actually represent the islands of Luzon, Panay and Mindanao, and not Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The Proclamation of Independence in 1898 referred to these 3 as the “archipelago’s three principal islands” where the revolution started, and not the “principal grouping of islands”.
