I'm a Filipino American, and when I first went back to The Philippines during the Centennial Celebration for Independence they had all the flags made during the years of fighting for freedom displayed everywhere, some were school projects posted in fast food places, others were historical displays. When I first saw the "KKK" I was like whoa Ku Klux Klan. It was my 1st time seeing it, but i then learned what the K's stood for: The Katipunan was a Philippine revolutionary society founded by anti-Spanish Filipinos in Manila in 1892, whose primary aim was to gain independence from Spain through revolution. The society was initiated by Filipino patriots Andrés Bonifacio, Teodoro Plata, Ladislao Diwa, and others on the night of July 7, when Filipino writer José Rizal was to be banished to Dapitan. Initially, the Katipunan was a secret organization until its discovery in 1896 that led to the outbreak of the Philippine Revolution.
The word "katipunan," literally means 'association,' comes from the root word "tipon," a Tagalog word meaning "gather together" or "society."[2] Its official revolutionary name is Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galang Katipunan ng̃ mg̃á Anak ng̃ Bayan[1][3] (English: Highest and Most Honorable Society of the Children of the Nation, Spanish: Suprema y Venerable Asociación de los Hijos del Pueblo). The Katipunan is also known by its acronym, K.K.K.(you can read more on this Wiki Link:[link]) It's weird how something in one country means something totally different in another. But I'm proud of my heritage American and Filipino alike. :D

Glad you enjoyed it. I like sharing historical info pertaining to just about anything.

Indeed it is. Oh and the garb that the Klan Members wear, in Spain during the celebration of Easter they have the Catholic Celebration called Semana Santa, where groups of people who are doing penance wear a similar garb, but has no affiliation to the KKK, and they have been wearing this uniform for centuries. ([link], [link])Just some more links if yer curious. :D
