    I doubt if ours stray far from the US Army insigna patterns. We Pinoys adopted/adapted the US Constitution with our 1935 Commonwealth version, Coca cola, rock and roll, and look up to the green card as a ticket to redemption from poverty. ;Q

    I guess you would be quite accurate with a download of US military insignia. From the top of my head I could confirm the progression of inverted V's as private, corporal, sergeant; double bars as lieutenant, clover leaf for major, forgot the captain's and colonel's... ;)

    I believe its different. Their corresponding ranks are also different (e.g. Master Seargent in the military is equivalent to Senior Police Officer 4 in PNP). Will try to research that for you.
