It was not identified if how many students were dismissed but in the video at least two were involved, the one who used the flag as mop and the other who was taking the video.

“The students involved were meted the sanction of dismissal in view of the gravity of their infraction, which was not only a direct affront to the University of the East community but to the entire country’s ideals and traditions as well,” Garcia said in a statement posted on the school’s Facebook page Monday night.

Although netizens gave hostility to UE, their administration appreciates the public’s feedback on the incident.

Based on the report, the students involved were in high school department of UE.

Under the Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines, it is prohibited to mutilate, deface, defile or trample on the flag. Anyone who violates it is punishable by fine ranging from P5,000 to P20,000 and one year prison term.
