Wagayway Festival

The impassioned devotion to the Philippine Flag waving valiantly as a symbol of courage and triumph, the Imuseños remained true to the values of their forefathers, hence came the Wagayway Festival and the City’s title “Flag Capital of the Philippines.”

Usually, the Festival is a 5-day celebration that starts May 24 highlighted by the Wagayway Flag Parade and culminates in a jovial celebration of the May 28 Battle of Alapan/National Flag Day. It was launched by Mayor Emmanuel L. Maliksi, who reminded the people that the core of the celebration is Love and Respect for the Philippine Flag, which symbolizes freedom and love for the country.
