story of the Filipino people is truly unlike any other.
Unlike other nations whose fight for independence started
through battles and proclamations, ours started with a painting.
veiled as happenstance in a Roman room, the painting "Spolarium"
by Juan Luna was a statement against harsh colonialism. The
painting's hidden meaning spread in the newspapers through
Luna's friend Jose Rizal's speech when it won in a grand Madrid
exposition. News of the controversial painting then
reached even the motherland Las Islas Filipinas.
salute our nation's patriots for the independence they so dearly
fought for and still to this day enjoy. Happy Independence
