Orden Slavy

The Order was established November 8th, 1943, and can be awarded to soldiers up to and including non-commissioned officers of the Red Army and up to junior lieutenants of the Red Airforce for "glorious deeds" while on active service. The Order has three classes; which class is to be awarded depends on the action involved.
The badge is in the shape of a pentagonal star with in its center a circle with an image, in relief, of the Kremlin with the Spassky tower ending in a red star. The image is surrounded at the upper half of the ring by two sprays of laurel and by a red riband on the bottom half with the inscription, in Cyrillic: Slavi (Glory). On the reverse is a plain circle with the characters CCCP stamped in the middle.The ribbon is orange moiré with three black stripes, as in the old Czarist Order of St. George.
