    As mentioned before, the source is Wikipedia. It goes without saying that information on Wikipedia should be treated with caution. Here is the corresponding link: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_d'ordres_civils_et_militaires Thanks for the correction!

    Have you seen these two Wikipedia articles? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_Charlemagne http://fr.academic.ru/dic.nsf/frwiki/2067769 Referring to Wikipedia the Order of Merit was created in 1993.

    @Megan, @taras, you're absolutely right. At first I thought it was the wrong regulation. Very extraordinary! Here the portuguese regulation (dated 27th December 2002) for closer comparison: http://www.exercito.pt/sites/CSDE/Actividades/Documents/Regulamento%20da%20Medalha%20Militar%20de%202002.pdf

    You are welcome, Peter. Here is an official portrait of the 4th President of Cape Verde, Jorge Carlos Fonseca (2011 - present). The breast star seems to be an amalgamation of the two orders, Amilcar Cabral Order (left medaillon) and the Order of the Dragon Tree/Plant (right medaillon). The sash combines also the ribbon colours of the two mentioned orders.
