Description of the award[edit] The medal is worn around the neck, suspended from a ribbon of dark blue, with a red vertical stripe in the center. The medal, as the name would indicate, is in the form of a five pointed star. The star contains a central disc displaying the Coat of arms of the Philippines. Surmounting the seal in an arc is a golden scroll engraved worth "Merit". The star is attached to its ribbon by a wreath of twenty-six dark green leaves and ten white buds. On the reverse of the medal is engraved "For Distinguished Service."[5] References[edit] Citations[edit]
