Welcome to the Philippine Consulate General, New York
A nation is born by the desire of its people to govern themselves and direct the course of their lives. More than a century ago, Filipinos stood by that desire, bled and fell, and gave birth to the first republic in Asia. We commemorate that moment today, the 113th Independence Day of our nation, with the theme Kalayaan: Paninindigan ng Bayan.
