Beyond the Colors of Red, White, Blue and Yellow

One of the challenges in the Philippine leg of Amazing Race 5 (watching reruns) was to identify the Philippine national flag among three flags in the islands of Palawan with the aid of binoculars.

Three of the four teams got the correct flag in two attempts while the other one failed twice. This scenario prompted me to do more research online about the national flag of the Philippines to enrich my current knowledge about it. Here’s what I found:
