Here's another Moro battle Flag, along with an Aguinaldo banner, both battlefield bring-backs. Again (I don't know where the other thread on flags went), my grandfather related to my grandmother, when she questioned the small white inclusion in the flag, that it represented a cotton boll, what with cotton being so important to the residents of Moroland (Mindanao).
Well, forget that. I don't have any 1mb pix. All mine run about three times that. Sorry.
Well, the first flag shared here is a flag from Sulu, it is a Sulu Sultanate flag; the five stars represented the five traditional territories under the rule of the Sultan of Sulu; the crossed weapons are a "kalis"(kris) and a "budjak" (spear); the small white motif with another dark symbol on it is unknown, no one can say clearly what it was, just conjectures...
The second flag is a filipino flag one of hundred of that kind;hte image is upside down ... Just a question : is the red sun a mythological sun ( a sun with human features) ? Is it possible to obtain more detailed image of both flags? If possible i would like to add images and infos on my sites : www.watawat.net and www.royalpanji.net.

I will try to get some better/more detailed photos, and then down-grade them to fit the 1MB profile. In close-ups of the sun, there is a figure enclosed, but as to facial characteristics, that would be a stretch. Feel free to add the photos to your site, along with any others I get posted in the future.
Thanks a lot for your help, i will wait more detailed images, that kind of sun il called "mythological sun ", was typical on filipino flags before 1936 when the first flag law was promulgued by President Quezon... .
