 Philippines: President and Vice President
The Philippines' Presidential Flag is a blue 2:3 (I assume; it did not seem as long as the national Philippines flag), with the President's Emblem centered inside it.
The seal of the President of the Philippines shall consist of the coat of arms of the President of the Philippines encircled by the words 'Seal of the President of the Philippines'."
The vice presidential flag was technically restored in 1986 but is hardly used; institutional memory is not there, so by mistake, often the presidential flag is used for the vice president.

 The Philippine Presidency Project
Presidents being inaugurated at the Quirino Grandstand could thus look out on a historic vista: the monument of the nation hero, on whose death anniversary presidents took their oath of office, and the Filipino flag, commemorating the proclamation of freedom in 1898 and its restoration in 1946.
She is the 12th president of a republic: that is, of a Philippine government that calls itself a republic (2 were Commonwealth presidents, with Roxas being the transitional president from Commonwealth to Republic).
It is wrong, totally, and absolutely wrong, and ignorant, to call the president “the President of the Republic of the Philippines.” The constitutionally-mandated, and thus, restricted, title for the chief executive of the country is the “President of the Philippines.” That is the title used in the Constitution and the president’s oath of office.

Then came matters such as why the position of vice president in the Philippine setting is so useless (the original intention of the 1935 Constitution was to have a unicameral National Assembly, which left no room to copy the American setup of having the veep serve as president of the Senate).
There is, too, the welcome and much more recent innovation established by President Estrada, who put an end to the practice from 1935 to 1998 of restricting the vice president to ceremonial duties in the absence of the president, leaving the executive secretary as caretaker of the government.
It sounds too trying-hard!" The Vice President himself said that while logistically it made sense to either move his office or set up an official residence complete with offices, the fact of the matter was that "spending is out," and that "incurring costs is unacceptable," and that seemed to put an end to the discussion.

 A heartbeat away from the presidency   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Further, when elected vice president as Roxas running mate in April 1946, Quirino received much fewer votes than Roxas despite the fact that Quirino was the son of the so-called solid north, the Ilocano region known as a solid voting block.
Avelino, on the other hand, was president of the Liberal Party, a position he ascended to in part upon the instance of Roxas, first president of the party, who became president of the Philippines by virtue of his party’s triumph in the April 23, 1946 national election.
By party rule at the time, when a member who is president of the party becomes president of the country, as in the case of Roxas, that member becomes the president of the entire nation and relinquishes the dual role of also being the president of his party.
