Here is the 2nd highest ranking Civil Awards of the Philippines, the Order of Lakandula, which ranks just below the Quezon Service Cross.

The Order of Lakandula was instituted on 19 September 2003 in 6 Classes. It is awarded for political and civic merit, in memory of King Lankandula's dedication to the responsibilities of leadership, prudence, fortitude, courage and resolve in the service of one's people.

Hilary Clinton, and Prince Felipe of Spain (who is now King Felipe VI) were awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of Lakandula. King Juan Carlos of Spain, Emperor Akhi Hito of Japan, and President Teodoro Obiang Nguema from Equatorial Guinea were awarded the Grand Collar.

It is very hard to get. The collar is not mine.....

I catch the Commander in a London auction, and the Member badge in Manila.

Regards to all.

The Order of Kalantiao, is a much less known award of the Philippines. But it is not a State Award.

It is a fraternal order from the Central Philippine University College of Law

Sadly I never have had the occasion to see one with my own eyes.

Regards.

Hello Gentlemen,

Very little is known about this Medal for Heroism in Time of Disaster.

There is the symbolism of the sun with the 3 stars, like on the white part triangle of the National Flag of the Philippines..

But we might guess it's a kind of civil gallantry award.

Manufacture is more modern, likely from the end of the 1980ies, or 1990ies.

Regards to all.

In 2014, I had the opportunity to buy in Manila, the insignia of the Order of the National Artist of the Philippines.

It's a very very large badge hung around the neck. About 14 centimeters large.

On the reverse the inscription : " Order of the National Artist - Republic of the Philippines"

Manufactured by A Zamora & Son's.

This award was instituted in 1972, and since then had been awarded 73 times. It can be awarded for Music, Dance, Theater, Literature, Contemporary Arts, Architecture Design & Allied Arts, Film & Broadcasting Arts.

According to my research on the net, there is others type of insignia of Order of National Artist.

Regards to all.

The Order of Kalantiao was once a State Decoration of the Philippine Republic instituted around 1973 but was discontinued around 2003. It was awarded to members of the Philippine judiciary . It has 3 ranks all of which I had duplicates.

     It was NEVER a fraternal order.

 

The Philippine Order of the National Artist decoration is a Grand Collar and was NEVER a medallion worn with a neck ribbon. I believe the medallion with a neck ribbon is a fantasy piece struck by Angel Zamora. I own 2 of these. I believe these were struck Zamora as a means to persuade the government that they could also strike these decoration. At that time Jose Tupaz of El Oro had the sole rights to strike the Grand collar for the government. I own 3 Grand Collars of the Order of the National Artist in my collection.

      I have been collecting Philippine medals for 20 years. My expertise are Philippine State Decorations and Philippine Military medals.

Hello Doc Blas,

Ok, I agree that the National Artist badge hung on a neck ribbon is not the way it has to be worn, and as I bought it from Zamora, it make sense. But this badge looks like a Collar Badge, without its suspension. And again it make sense. Often manufacturer of Orders & Medals produce insignia to show to Government Representative, hoping they could approve them. This happens in almost every country in the world.

Concerning Order of Kalianto, as so few information were available, I have reported what I found, and in the Reynolds Book there is no entry on Order of Kalianto, because Reynolds is only about military awards. So I wrote a mistake, but at least I show a photo of the award. 

You did correct my mistake, but you add no photo to increase the data base of this forum.....(a bit sad).

Best regards.

Hello Gentlemen,

 

Here I can show 2 photo, of the Philippines Police Medal of Valor, Type 1 at left, and Type 2 ( current type ), at right.

 

On its current form, The Philippines Police Medal of Valor ( Medalya ng Kagitingan ) was instituted on 23 September 1993; for Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity at risk of life, and limb above and beyond the call of duty. There had been an amendement of the regulation of this Award, on 10 July & 30 November 2006, then again on 27 October 2010.

 

In order to justify this award, a member of the PNP ( Philippines Police ), must perform in action, a deed of personal bravery and self sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty, so conspicuous, as to distinguish himself clearly above his comrades, in the performance of more than ordinary hazardous service.

 

In case of actual combat with armed enemies, the award may be given, only if the enemy force is so overwhelming as compared to the government troops.

 

The President of the Philippines approves the Award.

 

The Award can be awarded posthumously.

 

The Philippines Police Medal of Valor entitles the widower and/or dependents of the awardee to a lifetime monthly gratuity, and precedence in employment in National Government Agencies ( NGAs ), or Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations ( GOCCs ) among other benefits.

 

Regards to all.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
