History of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines

Article from San Carlos LGU verbatim:

San Carlos City was formerly named Nabingkalan, in honor of a beautiful daughter of a chieftain Negrito settlement in the area. The settlement was later bought by Carlos Apurado from Badian, Cebu who, with the help of fellow pioneers, developed the settlement into a thriving Christian Village.

In 1856, Señor Don Emilio Saravia, the first political military governor of Negros Island during the Spanish era, renamed the place and established it as a “pueblo”.

San Carlos prospered through the years, however, the village lost its “pueblo” category, and in 1890, when Negros Island was divided into Occidental Negros and Oriental Negros, San Carlos was recorded as an “arrabal” or barrio of Calatrava (Hilub-an).

San Carlos acquired its status as a town in late 1898 when Gen Juan Araneta of the Revolutionary Philippine republic officially proclaimed it as a municipality. This was confirmed by the American Military Administration in 1901.

In May 1942, the Japanese army occupied the town and encountered a defiant Municipal Mayor, Eugenio Antonio Sr., who refused to surrender and collaborate with them. He railed the renegade soldiers along with loyal civilians and organized them as a guerilla unit. Thus, San Carlos became the hotbed of resistance activities against the Japanese imperial forces by the first Combat team, 7th MD (Negros) Guerilla forces, under Major Uldarico Baclagon.

San Carlos became a city on July 1, 1960 with the passage of Republic act No. 2643.

Another historical milestone in the file of the city is the cabinet meeting of Pres. Fidel V. Ramos in the last August 27,1996 making the San Carlos the first component city to be made the venue of a Presidential cabinet meeting.

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Festivals, Fiestas and Traditions of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines

Pintaflores Festival – 3 day of celebration of arts & culture festival added by competitions and exhibitions. Culminated by Street dancing and Ritual Competition from various contingents of the city they’re all painted with flowers on their bodies, and dancing with the rhythmic beats. Held annually on Nov. 3-5 in time with the celebration of Negros Day and the feast of St. Charles Borromeo, patron saint of the city.

The Legend of Pintaflores
by: Joe Recalex C. Alingasa, Jr.

In the early times of the Pre-Hispanic Era there was once an astute and beautiful princess who fled together with her tribe to a lush and green coastal valley at the northeastern part of Buglas (Negros). As she reaches her new abode after a few months she was afflicted with a strange illness which is incurable during her time. So worried of the princess's predicament, the tribesmen seek the aid of a babaylan (native priestess) who reckoned that the absence of flowers makes Princess Nabingka deeply saddened and eventually got sick.

To appease the babaylan all men, women and children of the tribe planted flowers but these didn't grow due to the humid atmosphere and the scorching heat of the sun. Anxious of the health of the princess, as the ultimate recourse, the babaylan finally summoned all tribespeople to tattoo their bodies with flower or floral accents in lieu of the usual tribal patterns. Amazingly, before the naked eyes of the babaylan and tribespeople, Princess Nabingka recuperated and gained back her youthful prowess and glee. As a gesture of thanksgiving the entire tribe threw a feast while they dance in magnanimity and this time with their bodies tattooed with flower designs.

Upon the arrival of some Spanish conquestadores to the place they discovered this tribe with the unique ritual which they refer to as "Pintados de Flores" or people with flower tattoos. In the advent of early civilization the place became a thriving Christian village and was popularly called Nabingkalan in honor of Princess Nabingka while the dance drama was later on dubbed as Pintaflores.
