"Democracy at its Best"

Hi to all! Today June 12,2010 we are celebrating our 112th independence day here in the Philippines! Congrats to our newly elected President Benigno Aquino III! Btw today's mani is very patriotic, I submitted it to weekly challenge of polishhoarderdisorder check her awesome blog, I love reading her blog cause there are lots of interesting things you will also like. I enjoy doing this mani, when you look at my previous post, this is the first mani I did.. But as you can see in the picture. I added some modifications.. In my thumbnail, I drew an image of the Philippine flag, in my index, middle and pinky fingernails I used sponged technique, then I drew the 3 star and a sun emblem,I was inspired by the rapper/singer Francis M. I knew everybody knows him, especially when you're here in the Philippines, and in my ring fingernail I applied white base coat, sponged it and drew a yellow ribbon which is the president-elects' symbol, and "Laban" which means "Fight" in English language.
Hope you like it! God Bless you all!

Explanation of the Flag
Each part of the Philippine flag has a specific meaning as follows:

The blue field stands for common unity and the noble desires of the Filipino people.
The white triangle with equal sides of the flag is symbolic of equality among men.
The white field stands for purity.
The sun stands for the gigantic strides that have been made by the Sons of the land on the road to progress and civilization.
The eight rays of the sun in the triangle represent the first eight united provinces that revolted for independence - Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Manila, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga and Tarlac.
The three stars in the triangle stand for the three major geographical divisions of the country which are Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The red field symbolizes the eagerness of the Filipino people to shed blood in defense for their country
