Guenther Vomberg and the Order of the Knights of Rizal

I thought that this Fraternity deserves an own Post.

So here its is, and a a few Photos also.

As mentioned in the Post about “The Final Migration”, I came into contact with some of their illustrious members ( this is how we Knights approach each other officially.)

The Order of the Knights of Rizal is a fine and old Organization, one could say, older than the independent Republik of the Philippines.

The Republic of the Philippines established its only order of Knighthood through Republic Act No. 646 in Honor of the aspirations and ideals of the national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. In English it is known as the Knights of Rizal and in Spanish, Orden de Caballeros de Rizal.
Its medal ranks as lowest of the Philippine orders of merit.

This just to clarify for so many believing it is just a “club” one can join. That would also explain why so many Prominent and distinguished Filipinos proudly wear their Order on official Occasions .
