The Philippine Flag flies high on a flagstaff, juxtaposed against fleecy clouds wafting through a clear blue sky. The statue represents the Filipino, who, armed with this plow and rifle, seeks to defend his country against invaders-- both from within and from without. The angled ramparts are suggestive of old Spanish-era structures in the old Walled City of Intramuros. Note: The statue of the farmer-warrior has since been replaced by the statue of Pres. Manuel L. Quezon.
