Floridablanca
formerly known as "Manggang Punglud"
Spanish word meaning Maputing Sampaga
One is that the name Floridablanca was in honor of a certain
Conde de Floridablanca
whom they believed visited the place and hunted wild games in the early 1800s.
The other one is the existence of the l
owly pandacaqui plant
which abound and thrived under the lush forest cover of the town during that period. It is valued and is often used for its medicinal efficacy in treating different diseases.
It is widely believed that what greeted the Spaniards when they set foot on Floridablanca's soil were myriad of
white flowers of pandacaqui
, thus the name Floridablanca.
