Freemasonry and the Philippine flag

I'm not surprised. I had been curious about its origins and the interpretations behind its symbols and devices simply didn't satisfy my suspicions.

[M]asonry played an important role in the design of the Philippine flag and that some of its symbols were meant to memorialize the Craft. These assertions are essentially plausible, for the man principally responsible for its design — President Emilio Aguinaldo — was a zealous masonic partisan.

Now I have misgivings about saluting the flag.
