Noong taong 1962, May 12, nilinaw ni Pangulong Diosdado Macapagal na ang araw ng kalayaan ng bansa ay hindi dapat ipinadiriwang tuwing July 4.

Bagkus, ang tunay na kasarinlan ng Pilipinas ayon sa kaniya ay June 12, 1898, nang i-proklama ito ni General Emilio Aguinaldo sa Kawit, Cavite.


Noong August 4, 1964, tuluyan ng nilagdaan ni Pangulong Macapagal ang Republic Act No. 4166 na nagde-deklarang ang June 12 ang opisyal na Philippine Independence Day.

Samantala, ipinagdiriwang naman ang July 4 bilang Filipino-American Friendship Day.
