SM malls in Marilao, Baliwag, and Pulilan join the nation in the observance of the National Flag Day on May 28.

4. The SM City Marilao security force led the entrance of colors during the celebration of National Flag Day at the Event Center.

To ignite the momentous occasion, a flag-raising ceremony that displays a clean Philippine flag was conducted at SM Bulacan malls in an effort to instill patriotism among mall employees, partner agencies, affiliates, and tenants.

The National Flag Day commemorates the first unfurling of the Philippine flag during the historic “Battle of Alapan” in Kawit, Cavite, on May 28, 1898.

The National Flag Day also signals the unveiling of activities lined up for the Independence Day celebration on June 12. Aside from the vibrant display of the Philippines flag’s symbolic colors around the mall, SM malls in Marilao, Baliwag, and Pulilan will mount events that promote Filipino-made products, such as the Super Pinoy Food Trip and Super Pinoy Market featuring local MSMEs.
