Order of Smile


Recommended Posts

(Order Usmiechu)

Instituted in 1968. The only decoration of the world conferred on children's proposal and behalf to adults, irrespective of nationality, statehood and profession, for a heart shown to children. Initially Polish, it is now an international order with its own chapter.

The investiture is accompanied by a ceremony, during which recipients must drink a cup of lemon juice to the bottom, keeping a smile on their faces.

The medal was designed in 1967 by a then 9-year-old girl, Ewa Chrobak (a dame of the order since 1997).
