The Flag of Philippines Philippines is a chain of 7,641 Pacific islands in South East Asia, and is a strategic location for naval invasions. It is also a puppet of the Flag of United States United States.

Historical background[edit]

The Flag of Philippines Philippines was once part of the Spanish Empire for over 300 years before being ceded to the Flag of United States United States due to the latter's victory in the Spanish-American War which led to the Treaty of Paris (1898). The Commonwealth of the Philippines was the administrative body that governed the Philippines from 1935 to 1946 and was formed to overlook a ten-year period of peaceful transition to full independence. The Philippines was then taken by Flag of Japan Japan and formed a puppet state called the Second Philippine Republic, which was powerless against the invading Japanese forces who occupied it for three years (1942-1945). It was liberated by U.S forces in 1945, and the Philippines gained independence on the promised date of July 4, 1946.


The "Capture of Manila" event triggers when Manila is taken by an invading force.
