Banderas de los países que hablan castellano.

Today, alongside with our Spanish-speaking brothers from around the globe, the Philippines should be celebrating el Día De La Hispanidad (Day of the Hispanic World). Other Spanish-speaking countries are greeting one another. But what about our country?

¡Viva Jesli Lapus!
