Hello Filip

the first medal you stated is correctly called "Medalja zasluga za narod", translated "Medal for merits towards the people"

It's awarded in one class for merits achieved during fight against the enemy, for liberation of country and achievents in aprovment and building of the Republika Srpska. (taken and liberately translated from the institution document). Institution date is 25.april 1993.

The medal is awarded to all army personel up to a grade of captain and civilians which aply to the other awarding criteria.

On the avers of the medal is a fragment of the famous picture of Paja Jovanovic "Takovo uprising" showing the oberknez Milos Obrenovic as the leader of the uprising a monk as the representative of the serbin orthodox church and a farmer as the representative of the people. Milos holds in his hand a flag and is cerning his forces and will to protect the people.

The other medals will follow shortly as I find a time window to write it down.

Best regards

Milan

Greetings Ilja and thank you for reviving this topic, I've been meaning to start a new topic on decorations of Republic of Srpska for some time, this is an excellent "excuse".

In 1993 Republic of Srpska introduced the following orders:

01. Order of Republic of Srpska (Орден Републике Српске)

02. Order of Nemanjić (Орден Немањића)

03. Karageorge Star (Карађорђева звијезда)

04. Order of Miloš Obilić (Орден Милоша Обилића)

05. Order of Njegoš (Орден Његоша)

06. Charity Cross (Крст милосрђа)

Medals:

01. Medal of Petar Mrkonjić (Медаља Петра Мркоњића)

02. Medal of Milan Tepić (Медаља Милана Тепића)

03. Medal for Merits Towards the People (Медаља заслуга за народ)

04. Medal for Bravery - Gavrilo Princip medal (Медаља за храброст - Медаља Гаврила Принципа)

05. Medal for Military Merits (Медаља за војне заслуге)

06. Medal for Military Virtues (Медаља за војничке врлине)

I believe that three more orders were instituted later but I was not able to determine when exactly. Those are:

01. Order of the Flag of Republic of Srpska (Орден заставе Републике Српске)

02. Order of St. Petar Zimonjić (Орден светог Петра Зимоњића)

03. Order of Honor (Орден части)

Nice Radmilo.

Thanks !!!

May be you now something about this N.Tesla order?

You are most welcome Ilja.

That would be Yugoslav Order of Tesla 1st class introduced in 1998. I used that same picture in this topic on FRY decorations: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/54281-federal-republic-of-yugoslavia-post-1990/ I believe that that particular order was awarded to Military Medical Academy.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
