FLAG OF DATU PIANG OF COTABATO

"Oh, you should have seen him when they had the fair at Cotabato," said the American, with a
smile. "He came down the river in a barge of state, propelled by seventy rowers. From the mast
flew his own peculiar flag, yellow, red and purple - and I can tell you the bamboo craft was 'some
decorated.' There was a clown at the bow, who performed antics, and a dancing fool - just like the
kings of old. There were twelve male drummers, dressed in scarlet, and a row of female tom-tom
players. As for Dato Piang, I haven't enough adjectives to describe his splendor. You can bet that
barge made a hit!"
