Observance of decorum during flag-raising programs stressed
by Rimaliza A. Opiña

Receiving thousands of visitors every year is no guarantee that we are the most gracious hosts.

On the behest of City Human Resource Officer Augustin Laban III, Mayor Mauricio Domogan, on Monday created a committee to formulate rules of decorum that every employee of the city government should adhere to especially when receiving visitors, as well as in the conduct of the weekly flag-raising ceremony.

Recognizing that the city has a lot to learn from its sister cities and neighboring towns, Domogan tasked the City Human Resource Management Office, City Tourism Office, City Administrator’s Office, and the General Services Office to come up with guidelines.

Domogan issued the directive following the dismal attendance of city employees and department heads when it was the turn of the city government to receive the Unity Gong as part of the celebration of Cordillera Month.

Domogan said he issued a memorandum to the city’s department heads to attend the event but apart from setting up the stage for the affair, no one attended the same.

He said compared to Baguio’s sister cities and neighboring towns, there are ushers who attend to guests.

“We should improve on this,” the mayor said.  

Also, Laban suggested that prior to the weekly flag-raising ceremony, the department in charge should first report to human resources office so they will be coached on the proper of way conducting the Lupang Hinirang.

Laban, an educator by profession, said that apart from correct rendition of the national anthem, the tempo should be in accordance with the arrangement of Julian Felipe.

Republic Act 8491 or the Flag and Heraldic Code provides the moment the first note of the anthem is heard, everyone in the premises shall come to attention; moving vehicles shall stop and all persons present shall place their right palms over their chests; those with hats shall uncover; while those in military, scouting, security guard, and citizens military training uniforms shall give a salute.

City Administrator Carlos Canilao said intermission numbers during the flag-raising rites will also be screened to ensure their appropriateness to the ceremony. This helps maintain the formality and dignity of the flag-raising ceremony.
