CAVITE DAY: A Day of the Braves

The province of Cavite located in part of the CALABARZON region of Luzon is considered as one of the developed industries in the country Philippines. The origin of ‘Cavite’ came from the word “Kawit” or “Cauit” which means hook. The hook typically refers to the figure of the land that can be seen in the coast of Bacoor Bay. The Spaniards back then pronounced the word “Kawit” as “Kawite,” making it known to “Cavite.” For the past hundred years, the province of Cavite has been part of the history where the country fought for independence. It has been remarked as “Historical Capital of the Philippines” for taking part in the sacrifice of our national heroes. As a large number of our great heroes battled for independence, the province of Cavite is also known as “Land of the Brave.” People who live in Cavite are called “Caviteños,” embodying bravery and fearless individuality that surely traces its root back from the courage of our national heroes.

On March 8, 2022, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea thru the authority of the President, Rodrigo Roa Duterte, signed Proclamation 1328 declaring March 22 as a special non-working holiday or also known as “Aguinaldo Day” in the province of Cavite. This celebration is to give tribute to national hero General Emilio F. Aguinaldo, a Cavite-born and raised. He is also called “Heneral Miong” by his closest friends and relatives, as the hero general was born on March 22, 1896 at his family anchestral hometown in Kawit, Cavite. Back in Cavite, Aguinaldo forcibly set up a provisional dictatorship. His elite local hometown is the most significant place in the Philippine Independence Day History, where our beloved national hero gave his independence day speech, and waved the Philippine flag for the very first time. With his accomplishments and contribution, no amount of  dime could displace the power that he has. Whereas, the Province of Cavite will mark the celebration of the birth anniversary of the first President of the Republic of the Philippines.

As Cavite has taken part in the Philippine Revolution in 1898, the commemoration of Cavite Day has been considered as a national non-working holiday to recognize the sacrifice of our national heroes to gain freedom from the control of the Spanish colonial period. Cavite has also a wide range of sites to visit that were associated from the history of the Philippine Revolution. The historical significance of the province of Cavite has been considered as home of the braves.
