BONIFACIO FLAG

As the Katipunan’s Supremo, Andres Bonifacio had a personal flag which depicts a white sun with an indefinite number of rays on a field of red. Below the sun are three white Ks arranged horizontally. Benita Rodriguez and Gregoria De Jesus (Bonifacio’s wife) made the flag upon the request of Bonifacio. This flag was first used on August 23, 1896 during the “Cry of Pugad Lawin” where the assembled members of the Katipunan tore their cedulas ( community tax certificates) in defiance of Spanish authority.
