Text: “what do the KKK flags stand for in the Andrés Bonifacio Monument photo? i realize they’re not the same as american KKK lol” - asked by bongsniffer
Answer:
"Lol ya we get that a lot especially when people see the KKK shirts, hats, flags, etc. I remember one time a friend of mine wore a shirt to school and they told him to take it off despite it being no way related to the racist KKK majority of people think of.
But ya for us Filipino’s and in the Philippines KKK stands for Kataastaasang Kagalanggalang Katipunan, with the full title being Kataastaasang Kagalanggalang Katipunan Ng Mga ng Anak Bayan which means “Highest and Most Honorable Society of the Children of the Nation”. It was a revolutionary, anti-imperialist movement against Spanish colonization and rule that was founded in 1892. It was actually a secret organization formed to try and get rid of Spain and to become an independent nation until the organization was discovered in 1896 which eventually led to the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution.
So for us KKK and its symbols stand for our revolution and national liberation from Spain. Today it is also used for todays revolutionary movements in regards to liberation and socialism.”

Note: The question mentions the flags on the Andres Bonifacio Monument which a photo was recently posted on Pinoy-Culture.
