White color of the equilateral triangle on the hoist side symbolizes equality, fraternity and peace. Blue and red panels are equally divided horizontally where the blue symbolizes noble ideals, political purposes, truth and justice whereas the red is embodied with patriotism, bravery, heroism, courage and willingness of the Filipino patriots to sacrifice life for cause of independence.

Did you know that if the red flies on top, it means that Philippines is at a major war? The flag of the Republic of the Philippines was adopted on May 19, 1898. The Philippine flag has two equal horizontal bands (blue on the top and red on the bottom during peacetime; red on the top during war) (Enchanted Learning dot com/asia/philippines/flag)
In honor of today's significance to all Filipinos, before you head to check on all the goodies everyone has to offer, make sure you have yourself a great breakfast, on me! I saw this at Susan's over at "A Southern Daydreamer" and thought it'd be a great breakfast to serve to my own family-- and YOU!
Our drink to start the day, no OJ here today! We like to wake up our minds, too, so we'll have the Minute Maid Blueberry Pomegranate 100% juice that's good for the brain! I know "Brain" loves it!
I'm also flaunting my the beautiful red on the Philippine flag and some of my delicious red strawberries. I got them from Albertson's and they are juicy and sweet! It's my first time joining in with Stacey's FYRF fun, so I hope this is an ok start. (fingers crossed) (Just my luck, she's not available to host today, so I may just be the only one flaunting today, lol)
A big thanks to our lovely hosts, Michael Lee and Stacey; and to all of you who came "peeking" in. Remember, BREAKFAST is the most important meal of the day... :-)
