national symbols of the Philippines
consist of  symbols that represent Philippine traditions and
 
ideals and convey the principles of sovereignty and national solidarity.
 Republic Act 8491, known alsoas Flag and Heraldic Code of the Philippines, stipulates the code for national flag,anthem,motto, coat-of-
 
arms and other heraldic items and devices of the Philippines.
  Apart from RA 8491, the Philippines has
 
only four official national symbols enacted through a proclamation by the executive department,namely sampaguita, narra,the Philippine eagle,and arnis.In 1934, during the Commonwealth
 
 and narra
 as national flower and national
 
tree, respectively, through Proclamation No. 652. Philippine President Fidel Ramos proclaimed the
 
Philippine eagle as the national bird in 1995 through Proclamation No. 615.
 In 2009, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared arnis as the national sport and martial art through Republic Act 9850.
 
Others believed national symbols such as the Cariñosa, Carabao, Bangus,and  Anahaw that are
 
circulating through various sources have no official status and have not established by law.
Furthermore,there is no Filipino historical figure officially declared as national hero through law or executiveorder .
  Although, there were laws and proclamations honoring Filipino heroes. On November 15, 1995,the Technical Committee of the National Heroes Committee, created through Executive Order No. 5 byformer President Fidel Ramos, recommended nine Filipino historical figures to be National Heroes: JoseRizal,  Andres Bonifacio, Emilio Aguinaldo,  Apolinario Mabini,Marcelo H. del Pilar , Sultan Dipatuan
 
 Up to now, no action has been taken for 
 
these recommended National Heroes.
