Our Purpose

Cultivating Community and Civic Pride

PFCP organizes Philly Flag Day annually on March 27th, bringing the community together to celebrate our shared heritage and values.

Throughout the year, we extend the Philadelphia Maneto Spirit of this celebration through educational programs that reach schools, businesses, and organizations city-wide.

Our purpose is to deepen the understanding of the flag’s significance and foster a sense of belonging and civic pride among Philadelphians.

Our guiding motto, 'Philadelphia Maneto,' underscores every initiative we undertake.

This historic call to 'Let brotherly love continue' is a daily reminder of our commitment to fostering peace and unity.

It is a call to action for every citizen to embody the spirit of brotherly love that is the foundation of our city.

Our City Motto

Philadelphia Maneto:
Let Brotherly Love Continue
