I am glad that you have started this topic about my country's Orders and Medals. Many things have been written about them and most of the stuff you can find online is unreal. The current official decorations of the Principality of Andorra are those on Antonio's paper:
- Order of Charlemagne (in its 4 classes although only the Medal and the Grand Cross insignia were ever made in 2008). The graphic designer Mathieu Chaine made for me to publish the digital reproduction of the insignia, as I was not allowed to publish the original pictures I could take of it in the Government building). One of the Grand Crosses (two were made) was awarded to Frank Ghery and he refused the award after a fight with the government. The only Medal made was awarded to Jose Luis Sampedro, a Spanish writter and economist that founded the Summer School of the University of Andorra.
- Medals of the City Guard: three types of Medal of which I can post pictures as I participated on their design and reglamentation. Medals for 15, 20 and 25 yeras of Service; the Medal of Professional Merit of the City Guards (cross design and same award for civilians contributing with high participation to the activities of the city guards) and the City (Canillo, Encamp, Ordino, La Massana, Andorra la Vella, Sant Julià de Lòria and Escaldes-Engordany) Medals for 25 years of Service as City Guard in a specific City.
- Medal for 25 years of service at the Fire Corps: non reglamented but awarded since 2011. Working to regulate it as it needs to.
The other mentions to Medals of Andorra are to small round badges which cannot be considered Orders or Medals if we do not change their designs and reglaments (working towards this right now). Thus, the badges awarded to the Police and to the Borders corpses are neither correctly regulated nor not regulated at all (as the police ones).
Finally, and hope to close the topic about the Order of Merit asap as I have talked already about it at my page International Orders and Medals on Facebook: it is a FAKE Order, created and produced by Guccione in Rome by someone that had the wonderful idea of selling these pieces to collectors that would pay for a "genuine" Andorran Order. But there is neither any regulation about it in Andorra nor any politician that I know (I know many who ruled in the 1990's) that has ever known or seen it. Same for the Commerce Medal and so on, all fake.
Oh, and I was forgetting that there are, since 1918 (aprox) some institutional badges for the politicians and other authorities (Coprinces, Ministers, Prime Minister, President of the Supreme Court, etc).
Where have you seen the Order of Merit was created? In 1993 the Constitution was approved, but only this. The first Order created was Charlemagne's in 2007.
