Information about Battle of Alapan Site
Battle of Alapan Site
This paved the way for the creation of the First Philippine Republic. On May 28, 1898, it was here that the Philippine Flag, sewn in Hong Kong by Marcella Agoncillo, was Baptized in Fire.
The fight site is located at Alapan I Elementary School, about a 10-15 minute drive from town. The location of this marker is highlighted by a 104-foot-tall flagpole, which proudly displays the Philippine flag. The plaque sits atop three massive rocks, each of which is encrusted with pasted cement. A statue of a woman raising the Philippine flag stands in the middle of the rock.
The National Historical Institute designated the site as a national historical monument in Resolution Number 5 Series of 1993, which was signed on May 26, 1993.
