The tallest flagpole in the Philippines, also known as the Independence Flagpole, stands at 105 feet near the Rizal Monument in Rizal Park, Manila. On December 2, the monthly flag raising ceremony here will double as a tribute to the late Carlos Celdran

Celdran, lauded as one of Manila's respected cultural proponents, started his walking tours with the National Anthem of the Philippines. You would also see him holding a small Philippine flag for the rest of the tour around Intramuros. So it is only proper that the Stop and Salute Monthly Flag Ceremony in December, which is in the same month as Rizal Day (December), will honor his memory.

"We lost a person na talagang pinagmamalasakitan ang lungsod ng Maynila," Mayor Isko Moreno said in a speech on October 9 following the death of the performance artist. “Nawalan na naman kami ng isang promoter, tagapagtaguyod ng kasaysayan, lugar, magagandang aral na puwedeng matutunan sa lungsod ng Maynila."

Viva Manila joins Salute to a Clean Flag Movement and the National Parks Development Committee in organizing this occasion.

The Stop and Salute Monthly Flag Ceremony: A Tribute to Carlos Celdran is on December 2, 8 a.m. at Independence Flag Pole, Rizal Park, Manila. It is open to the public.
