I have managed to get only some info about this order.
Will update the thread once i get to know more.
This one is the latest addition to the Pakistan orders in my custody.

The symbolism is intriguing. I think I see cotton in the first quarter. The second quarter plant is unclear. In the third quarter could be a sheaf of hay or a bundle of arrows and the fourth could be a series of candles? It looks like a civilian order, possibly connected to economic development.

Civilian Order.. Yes! for rest my best guess is same as yours  :)

And probably we wont be able to know more in depth unless more credible research is made available.
I know someone who is now working on his book on Pakistan Orders. I will try to check more on this with him.

It's the state emblem of Pakistan.

The plants are Cotton, wheat, tea and jute.

I think tea and Jute are no longer major crops, having lost that area to Bangladesh.
However, the National Symbol, once approved, is difficult to change

Gottit. The Tamgha-e-Pakistan. Wiki says only 7 were awarded.
