A student is now gaining negative criticisms from the online community after a video of him disrespecting the national flag of the Philippines went viral on social media sites.
As seen on the video, the unidentified student was being filmed as he proudly used the replica of the Philippine flag using the small piece of fabric to clean the floor. The flag was used as a mop.
The netizens were furious by the act that he did saying that it is very disrespectful to do that.
It is being taught in every school from elementary to college how to respect and take good care of the flag.
According to the Republic Act No. 8491, “mutilation, defacement, defilement, trampling upon or casting contempt any act or omission casting dishonor or ridicule upon the flag over its surface.”
Anyone found guilty of violating provisions in said act will “be punished by a fine of not less than Five thousand pesos (5,000.00) not more than Twenty thousand pesos (P20,000.00), or by imprisonment for not more than one (1) year, or both such fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court.”
