According to some oral accounts the flag of the rebels was red with a square field; according to someone else the flag was white (upper stripe ) and red ( lower stripe).
The white and red flag probably was not a rebel flag , was simply the flag of the Marictime Province of the Philippines who flown on the spanish Arsenal de Cavite.

The red color on flags and standards of the Philippines is a typical color of war; we can also find it on many flags and standards of the Sultanates of Sulu and Mindanao ( Ranao Area and Maguindanao Area ) and also on many flags and standards of the Sultanates and Kingdoms of the Indonesian Archipelago.

SERGEANT FERNANDO LA MADRID, A MESTIZO WAS ONE OF THE LEADERS OF CAVITE MUTINY
