The Quezon Service Cross was proposed by President Manuel Roxas in honor of President Manuel L. Quezon to serve as the highest honor of the Republic. On August 2, 1946, President Manuel Roxas in a message submitted a proposed Joint Resolution to Congress for the creation of Quezon Service Cross. It was enacted by both houses of Congress through Joint Resolution No. 4 s. 1946. In the reforms of the awards system of the Republic in 2003, Executive Order No. 236 codified the Quezon Service Cross as the highest decoration of the Philippines in the Order of Precedence of Philippine Honors and State Decorations.
Since its creation in 1946, only four people, to date, have been awarded the Quezon Service Cross. Find out who those are, and more on the history of the award, in this page from the Official Gazette.
Today, November 26, 2012, President Benigno S. Aquino III conferred upon the late Secretary Jesse M. Robredo the Quezon Service Cross. Secretary Robredo is only the fifth person to receive the award since its creation in1946.
