The badge is a pentagonal star in gold or silver on a pentagonal silver background. It is suspended from a red bar with the inscription: Mat' geroinja (Mother Heroine). At the back of the bar is a pin to attach the badge to the clothing.
There are three variations: nr. 1 has a stamped mint mark, the serial number is engraved by hand; nrs. 2 and 3 have a raised mint mark, in version 2 the serial number is engraved by hand, in version 3 by a rotating tool.
Version 2 was not presented before the end of the 40's of the 20th Century.
