Photo courtesy of http://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/JohnBull.htmThe Exaggerator has so kindly called our attention on an inaccuracy in a particular information in our Juan De La Cruz post. And I quote:
"Actually, "John Bull" is the symbolic personification of Great Britain; the Union Jack refers to the flag, which, in the several depictions of John Bull, is oft appropriated as a waistcoat."
May I also clarify that Juan De La Cruz is neither a a symbolic representation of the Philippines nor the Filipino people but of the Filipino masses.
I apologize for all the information errors.
