Cross of Valour (C.V.)

The Cross of Valour recognizes acts of the most conspicuous courage in circumstances of extreme peril.

It is a gold cross of four equal limbs: the obverse of which is enamelled red and edged in gold with, superimposed in the centre, a gold maple leaf surrounded by a gold wreath of laurel, and on the reverse of which the Royal Cypher and the inscription VALOUR / VAILLANCE appear.
