Zamboanga del Sur (321 words)
It is bounded on the north and west by Zamboanga del Norte, on the east by Misamis Occidental, Panguil Bay, and Lanao del Norte, and on the south by the Moro Gulf and the Basilan Strait.
Zamboanga del Sur became a separate province in 1952 when Zamboanga was split into two.
Jambangan means "Land of Flowers," and Zamboanga City is still known as "the City of Flowers." The Samals and Badjaos later confused "Jambangan" with "Samhoangan" (docking point), from the word "sabuan," the wooden pole to which they anchored their vintas.
