Simple Rites to Mark Independence Day this Year
Due to the continued pace of the COVID-19 pandemic, rites will continue to be conducted at a toned-down pace for this year's Independence Day.
This year's theme is: ”Kalayaan 2021: Diwa ng Kalayaan sa Pagkakaisa at Paghilom ng Bayan” (Independence Day 2021: Essence of Freedom in the Unity and Healing of the Nation)
There will be a flag-raising ceremony that is customarily done simultaneously in different historical places in the Philippines to be followed by a wreath-laying ceremony.
The ceremony will start at 8:00 AM on 12 June 2021, Saturday.
Because of social distancing measures, crowds will be discouraged and there will be limits in the number of attendees.
