It is very interesting to find this big vertical "tv" in the middle of the plaza. The more interesting that it display the Philippine and American flag side by side.Btw, this bldg. is interestingly well lighted too! With this, I thought of throwing in some historical facts.

"Filipino-American Friendship Day was first celebrated on July 4, 1963. Before this date, the Filipino people celebrated July 4 since 1946 as Philippine Independence Day. This was the day in 1946 when United States President Harry S. Truman proclaimed United States withdrawal, surrendering all rights of possession, supervision, jurisdiction, and control of sovereignty, and recognizing the independence of the Philippines.

We celebrate Filipino-American Friendship Day to bring to the awareness of the peoples of the Philippines and the United States and to the rest of the world the numerous beneficial effects generated by mutual trust and friendship among nations – that friendly ties are the foundations of lasting international ties."

In the Philippines, 2010 photo essay.
