Order of Rising Sun - Vintage 2003

Recommended Posts

Hey mate! Give some rest to poor birds. Leave Kites alone! :D

Ok. Let’s talk about something else for a change.

There is one topic I am really interested in.

Modern version of order of the rising sun.

What is it? How it looks like? To whom it is handed over?

8 years in faleristic circulation and we have practically no information about this modern type.

Let’s try to do something about it.

Looks nice! Many changes! And the sign is very thick too (in comparison to his predecessors)! At least that what I’ve been told by the lucky person that met such badge in real world. To help with the differences here is a little photo compilation.

Pay special attention to the color of the document – modern documents printed on a different paper (color resemble crème brûlée). Nice!

It’s a pity that modern signs haven't kept women bows. I will miss that nice and beautiful detail.

Everything is unisex this days ... :(
