In the Philippines, pupils are required to memorize the “Panunumpa Sa Watawat Ng Pilipinas” or the Pledge of Allegiance to the Philippine Flag to show patriotism to our country. Panunumpa Sa Watawat Ng Pilipinas was written in Filipino and is therefore expected to be recited as such but an English version was also provided.
Panunumpa Sa Watawat Ng Pilipinas (Official Version)
Ako ay Pilipino
Buong katapatang nanunumpa
Sa watawat ng Pilipinas
At sa bansang kanyang sinasagisag
Na may dangal, katarungan at kalayaan
Na ipinakikilos ng sambayanang
Makakalikasan, at Makabansa.
Pledge of Allegiance to the Philippine Flag (Official English Translation)
I am a Filipino
I pledge my allegiance
To the flag of the Philippines
And to the country it represents
With honor, justice and freedom
Put in motion by one Nation
for the People,
for Nature and
for the Country.
