Order of the Republic-Czechoslovakia

Recommended Posts

In my opinion some Czechoslovak awards deserve their topic in this division.Among them surely belongs Order of Republic.Only 863 decorations was awarded during nearly 40 years.Only 4 socialist countries have the order with this name-Bulgaria,Yugoslavia, Tuva and Czechoslovakia.

Awarded: For extraordinary merit in building of the Czechoslovak Republic, especially in production, cultural or scientific activities; or for strenghtening of the defensive capabilities of the country.Many famous persons we can find among the awarded,also cities,enterprices-companies,military units,organizations,newspapers...

There were 3 versions of the order.

Design of the 1 st version is very similar to the Soviet Order of the Flag of Labour.Look at the obverse.Dimensions 4x4,3cm.Order was made from silver.All Czechoslovak orders,nearly all awards were made from silver.The reverse has the initials ČSR.

The design of the  2nd version has only one change in the reverse.There are initials ČSSR.That means-Československá socialitická republika.

This version began using from 1961.

The latest type came into being in 4.7.1977.The design changed from circle to a quadrate.Dimension-4x4x4x4cm.In the middle of the medallion of the order we can see the star with the state sign.

In the reverse we can see the number of the award ,the carat-marks.

The order finished its existence in the end of 1989.

Thanks for response and interest.The ribbon bar for State Price of Klement Gottwald-Státni cena Klementa Gottwalda was also made from silver.Look at the photos.

I think also ribbon bars of Order of Friendship and Order od Republik-the latest edition were made from silver.

The button ribbons  bars of Order of 25th February were made from silver.I will have to take the pictures and create the topic.
