  • The National Order of Vietnam was a combined military-civilian decoration of South Vietnam and was considered the highest honor that could be bestowed upon an individual by the Republic of Vietnam government. The decoration was created in 1950 and was awarded to any person who performed "grandiose works, remarkable deeds, exhibited bravery, or for those who have honored and served the country by lofty virtues and outstanding knowledge." The National Order was modelled after the French Légion d'honneur, and as such it was issued in five degrees: Grand Cross - wore the badge of the Order on a sash on the right shoulder, plus the star of the Order on the left chest; Grand Officer - wore the badge on a ribbon with rosette on the left chest, plus the star on the right chest; Commander - wore the badge on a necklet; Officer - wore the badge on a ribbon with rosette on the left chest; Knight - wore the badge on a ribbon on the left chest. Both the badge and the star had the same design, as shown on the top right of this page. The ribbon was red with yellow borders.
