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.

Here is the reverse of the Commander version of the Philippine Legion of Honor which has writing within the gilding which I wasn't able to post before.
