0 82

The province of Ilocos Norte has installed over 400 flags on the grounds of the capitol to remember the lives of Ilocanos who died due to COVID-19.

Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc shared that this is an effort to pay tribute to the lives of his fellow Ilokanos and give comfort to their family members. The Politiko added that this is also an attempt to highlight the traditional Ilokano tradition of “pananglagip” or remembering the dead.

Each flag honors the Ilokano and frontline heroes, who “have fallen after batting COVID-19, and a reminder to strengthen our resolve to prevent such deaths in the future,” Governor Manotoc said.
