    Question about Syrian Order of Civil Merit


    Recommended Posts

    The name in Arabic transliterates as Wisam al-Satahaqaq al-Suri (sorry, I can't figure out how to do on-screen Arabic the way Dave does). That is the real name. The usual English translation is, indeed, the "Order of Civil Merit". I guess Russians can tralslate the name however they wish, as could the Japanese or Indians or anyone else?

    This habitual English name (used by the Syrians too) distinguished this awards from the Wisam al-Sharif al-?Askari / Order of Military Honor.

    The Wisam al-Satahaqaq al-Suri is, of course, the successor to the French-era award which we call in English the Honor Medal of Syrian Merit.

    I'm not sure what your question was, but I hope I have answered it.
