The living flag at Ayala Triangle Gardens
I witnessed something different last June 9, 2010. I went to the Ayala Triangle Gardens and watched as the living flag was unveiled.
The living flag is made of different flowers in the colors that comprise the Philippine Flag -- red, white, yellow, and blue.
I took a close shot of the yellow flowers which made up the stars and the sun.
Since I didn't have the height to take a photo where you can actually see the flag, I climbed up to the fire escape inside Ayala Tower One and took the above shot from the window. The Ayala Triangle Gardens is a really nice park to visit with the family and walk around in, preferably during the cooler -ber months when it's not sweltering hot or rainy. There are a lot of trees and artistic sculptures all over the place. It's open from 6am to 10pm. Parking is not a problem because there's ample visitor parking in the basement levels.
Aside from the living flag, an exhibit called Everyday Filipino Heroes at Sedeño Underpass was also revealed to media guests. Reproductions of artistic works depicting heroes present in our daily lives lined the walls of the underpass. Pictured above is "Mommy" by Anna De Leon.
