The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) was created in 1972 initially as the National Historical Institute to integrate the diverse functions of various historical agencies. NHCP now, by virtue of R.A.10086, is responsible for the conservation and preservation of the country's historical legacies. Its major thrusts encompass an ambitious cultural program on  historical studies, curatorial works, architectural conservation, Philippine heraldry, historical information dissemination activities, restoration and preservation of relics and memorabilia of heroes and other renowned Filipinos.

The NHCP continues to undertake the commemoration of significant events and personages in Philippine history and safeguard the blazoning of the national government and its political divisions and instrumentalities.
