YAR - Order of Cooperation - Unknown Issue

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

Another unknown from Yemen. This time an Order of Cooperation from the Yemen Arab Republic. The order appears to be a locally manufactured piece.

The dimensions are as follows - badge 6.4cm diameter; suspension brooch 6.3cm x 3.8cm; ribbon 4.8cm. The colours of the ribbon - black, white and red, are those of the YAR flag.

The badge of the order bears the inscription, "Order of Cooperation".

The brooch which is possibly a high quality cap badge bears the inscription, "Yemen Arab Republic".

The symbolism of the badge - a white dove, three interlocking rings and an olive branch on a light and dark blue background, may indicate some form of association with a peace keeping or United Nations force - but this suggestion is wholly speculative.

The design of this award is distinctly different to the 'usual' YAR Order of Cooperation as detailed in the 1981 Regulations and manufactured by Skinner & Co. of London.

As ever any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

Kind regards,

Owain
