Lapu-Lapu was a native Muslim chieftain in Mactan, Cebu and representative of the Sultan of Sulu, and is known as the first native of the archipelago to resist Spanish colonization. He is retroactively regarded as the first national hero of the Philippines.

There are two other Lapu-Lapu monuments in the Philippines that I know of. One in Mactan, Cebu and another at the corner of Paseo de Roxas and Makati Avenue at the heart of Makati.
