The upper blue portion represents peace, truth and justice.

The red represents valour and patriotism.

The three stars represent the three main island groupings (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao).

The eight rays of the sun represent the first 8 provinces that sought to gain independence from Spain (Tarlac. Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, and Pampanga).
