Dubbed as the “Queen of Philippine Festivals”, Flores de Maria or Flores de Mayo is believed to be first observed in 1865 in Bulacan when Fr. Mariano Sevilla wrote the “Dalit kay Maria.”

Embellished with thousand flowers and crystal stones that epitomize the gigantic jewelry industry of Meycauayan and highlighted by the magnanimous “kinayas na kawayan of the Singkaban Fiesta”, this bamboo artwork is a traditional form of architecture that is now being used as a welcoming arch in festivities all over the Philippine archipelago.

Most importantly, the Singkaban arch serves as an iconic emblem of Bulacan’s history, arts, culture and tourism that massively speak about the Bulakenyo’s widely known culture of generosity and hospitality.

Bulalakaw is said to be a deity who has the appearance of a gigantic, shining bird or a bird-humanoid hybrid, as some believed he looks like a thin boy wearing a bird-like headdress or even a genderless deity with a bird's head. Some stories describe him to be a diwata who visits the earthly plane in form of a comet, hence the name Bulalakaw.

As some believed she looks like a thin woman wearing a bird-like headdress or even a genderless deity with a bird's head. Some stories describe her to be a diwata who visits the earthly plane in form of a comet, hence the name "bulalakaw" (shooting star).

"Colibangbang"
This national costume was inspired by a 1900's photo of a Gaddang woman. Showcasing the vibrant and wealthy tradition of the Gaddang tribe when it comes to clothing.
The headpiece was fused and inspired by one of the Cordilleran tribes, the Isnag. To promote patriotism and support the craftsmanship and intricacy of Cordillerians with their indigenous fabrics, the designer used Blue, Red and Yellow shades that can also be seen in the Philippine Flag.
The fabric meticulously weaved in the Mountain Province and has a design of "Colibangbang" a term coined in Northern Luzon which means Butterfly.
