RALLY ’ROUND THE FLAG. Emilio Aguinaldo, then in his 60s, posed postwar in his home in Kawit, Cavite, with his favorite flag, the same flag which is now in the museum set up by his great-grandson in Baguio City. Found tucked under his deathbed, this flag will have to undergo thorough testing, according to historian Ambeth Ocampo, before it can be authenticated as the original one sewn by Marcela Agoncillo in Hong Kong according to the specs of Aguinaldo.
