Star of Courage (S.C.)

The Star of Courage recognizes acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril.

It is a silver star of four points with a maple leaf in each of the four angles: on the obverse of which, superimposed in the centre, is a gold maple leaf surrounded by a gold wreath of laurel, and on the reverse of which the Royal Cypher and the inscription COURAGE appear.
