SBMA Flag Pole

SBMA Flag Pole

This is the SBMA flag pole located at Subic waterfront, which is just across the street from the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Administration Building, Subic, Philippines. The pole is 96 feet tall to symbolize the number of years of US military presence in the Philippines. Its base is 8 feet high to represent the 8,000 volunteers who reformed and rebuilt the former US naval base into SBMA.

The largest Filipino flag was unfurled here during the turn-over ceremony of the former US naval base to the Philippines on November 24, 1992.
