Footnote: The Order of the Knights of Rizal is the sole order of knighthood in the Philippines. The Order is created to honour and uphold the ideals of Philippine national hero José Rizal. Its ranks and insignia are recognized in the Honors Code of the Philippines as official awards of the Republic and is the Eighth Class Rank in the order of precedence of civilian decorations of the Orders, decorations, and medals of the Philippines. The Order of the Knights of Rizal was first organized out of a group of nine men by Manila Police Chief Colonel Antonio Torres on Rizal Day, December 30, 1911, to commemorate martyrdom of Philippine national hero, Dr. José Rizal. Exactly a year later, a state funeral was held to transfer Rizal's remains from his family's house in Binondo, Manila for a wake in the Ayuntamiento and finally a burial in Luneta where the Order of the Knights of Rizal acted as the honour guards. Since then, the order has led commemorations of Rizal's birth anniversaries and plays a prominent role during Rizal Day ceremonies commemorating his death anniversary. In 1951, the order pushed for filing a bill in the Philippine Congress to grant the Order of the Knights of Rizal a legislative charter. Senators Enrique Magalona, Lorenzo Sumulong, Esteban Abada, Emiliano Tria Tirona, Camilo Osías, Geronima Pécson, José Avelino and Ramon Torres sponsored the bill in the Senate while Congressman Manuel Zola of Cebu was the principal sponsor in the Congress. The bill was signed into law by Philippine President Elpidio Quirino on June 14, 1951 as Republic Act 646. The Bill constitutes an official recognition of the inestimable value to the nation and the world of Rizal's teachings and the wisdom necessity of inculcating in the minds and hearts of people so they may follow and practice them. The Order's insignia has since been approved to be worn by the Philippine diplomatic corps. It is issued in five ranks: Knight of Rizal (KR), Knight Officer of Rizal (KOR), Knight Commander of Rizal (KCR), Knight Grand Officer of Rizal (KGOR) and Knight Grand Cross of Rizal (KGCR).

Since its founding, the Order has grown to more than 25,000 members belonging to 131 active chapters in the Philippines and 61 active chapters around the world including Australia, Argentina, Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Brunei, Bahrain, Indonesia, Croatia, Papua New Guinea, Belarus, Ireland, Belgium, Finland, Norway, France, Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia, Japan, Nigeria, Fiji, Mauritius, Seychelles, Czech Republic, Qatar, Solomon Island, Cambodia, Saudi Arabia , Switzerland, Singapore, Lebanon, Moldova, South Korea, South Africa, Morocco, New Zealand, Malaysia, Tonga, Russia, Rwanda, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Pakistan, India, Monaco, Israel, Macau, Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Myanmar, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong , Thailand, Lithuania, Timor-Leste, UK, Ukraine, Turkey, Tunisia, Taiwan, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada and the United States.[5] Its international headquarters is located on Bonifacio Drive in Port Area, Manila.
