Thank you for this extraordinary information!! Are the statutes publicly available in printed/illustrated form and if so where? Who designed the awards? Do you know what firm manufactures the decorations and prints the documents. Sincere thanks for a very worthy effort!!

You are most welcome!

I wanted to start a topic on new Serbian decorations for quite some time now but I was too lazy to do so before.

I found statutes online on couple of places, here's link to one of them: http://demo.paragraf.rs/combined/Old/t/t2013_01/t01_0026.htm

All of the decorations are manufactured by Zavod za izradu novčanica i kovanog novca (The Institute for Manufacturing Banknotes and Coins) from Belgrade. This institute also produced decorations of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the previous communist Yugoslavia. It is perhaps better known simply as ZIN (or ZNB). My guess is they are also in charge of making the documents but I am not sure about that.

According to information I found online Mitar Petković (Митар Петковић) designed Order of the Republic of Serbia and Order of the Serbian Flag. Miroljib Stamenković (Мирољуб Стаменковић) designed the Order of the Star of Karađorđe and Nikola Vukosavljević (Никола Вукосављевић) designed the Order of Sretenje and the Order of Merits in Defense and Security. Could not find out who did the rest of them...

4) Medal for Wounding in Multinational Operations (Војна спомен-медаља за рањавање у мултинационалним операцијама)

Medal awarded for being wounded once, twice and three times. Looks like the only difference from the Combat Wound Medal is the color of the ribbon.
