CITY OF MALOLOS A heritage city. Once a part of the old Pueblo or town of
Bulakan, as its district became the center of trade and commerce in Central Luzon.
During the 18th century, many Chinese merchants went to Malolos travelling by sea from
Manila BAy. But in 1673, due to the rapid increase of population and the districts wealth,
Malolos was created as an independent Pueblo.
From the time Malolos had an ancient Chinese name "Li-Han", where leaders bore the title "GAT-SALIHAN" or GATCHALIAN (derived from Gat sa Li-han) up to the time when if became the capital of the short-lived Philippine Republic, Malolos had been the venue of many convening patriots and heroes as embedded in our country's history. Here, the famous women of Malolos was cited by no less than Dr.Jose Rizal for their unusual courage and intelligence in their struggle for the rights to education. It is the home of the Philippine Republic, more commonly known as the Malolos Republic. It was where the Malolos Congress convened on September 15,1898, and drafted and approved the first democratic constitution in Asia, The Malolos Constitution. That constitution was signed on January 22, 1899 and was formally established with the proclamation of First Philippine Republic in January 23, 1899 with Gen.Emilio Aguinaldo as its President.
These are the historical events that transpired in Malolos, which compel our present batch of young and dynamic leaders to launch programs that aim to match our ancestor's esteemed heritage.
