The day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Filipinos in the United States, those we now respectfully call the “Manongs,” began a drive to form an all-Filipino military unit. Quickly trained, Filipino immigrants turned-soldiers would be sent to help push the Japanese out of the Philippines. They would fight bravely for the liberation of their homeland.
The design for this cap was inspired by the Coat of Arms logo of the 1st Filipino Regiment Infantry. The three stars are taken from the Philippines’ flag that symbolizes the three principal islands, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The cross kris blade and Igorot war shield represents the two warrior tribes of the islands.
The bottom of the brim is a photograph of the 2nd Filipino Regiment Infantry. Wielding their choice of weapon, also part of their field equipment, the Bolo.

If we take a look at Filipino history, we learn that it’s a constant struggle of power and resistance of the Filipino people. “Bayanihan” which translates into community working together, plays a big role in Filipino history and culture. The strong sense of community has brought Filipino people together through The Katipunan, The United Farmworkers, and The Edsa Revolutionaries.
