Manila, Philippines is the heart of the Philippine archipelago, situated on the southwest Luzon Island and Manila Bay – an inlet of the South China Sea. The city was named after a white-flowered mangrove plant called the “Nilad” that grows abundantly in the areas. Manila was founded way back year 1571, when the Spanish invaders under the leadership of Miguel López de Legaspi enters in the inlet of Manila bay, destroying the first Islamic tribal settlement and founded the fortress city of Intramuros as its own place. The whole city was once colonized by the Spaniards for approximately 333 years until it was seized by the US troops lead by General Mac Arthur during the time of US President Roosevelt. But the invasion doesn’t just end from the hands of the American rule. In the year 1942 – 1945 Manila, Philippines was colonized by the Japanese people during the World War II. In September 2, 1945 the city was totally free from Japanese colonization.

Now, Manila, the central city of the Philippines is proudly celebrating the Philippine Declaration of Independence from Spain every June 12, since 1898, as the formalized date of independence day presented by President Diosdado Macapagal under Proclamation no. 2695 to commemorate the country`s freedom that was once declared by President Emilio Aguinaldo. Hence, the actual recognition of independence from the United States was on July 4, 1946 through the Treaty of Manila signed by Ambassador Paul V. McNutt as the US representatives and the Philippine President Manuel Roxas. The treaty has an accompanied “provisional agreement concerning friendly relations and diplomatic and consular representation.”
