New Danish Medals

Recommended Posts

I have just heard that the Danish Ministry of Justice has announced 4 new medals:

1. The Ministry of Justice Medal

2. The Ministry of Justice Medal for Killed in Action

3. The Ministry of Justice Medal for Wounded in Action

4. The Ministry of Justice Medal for International Service

These have been approved by the Queen, but as yet no information on designs of medals or ribbons. As the police long service medal is one of the few Danish ones not to have a red and white ribbon, there's speculation that these new medals may also incorporate the colour green in the ribbon.

The Ministry of Justice has oversight of the police and the prisons service, for which the last 3 medals are intended. The first one may be awarded to anyone as the Minister of Justice sees fit.

Here is the announcement (in Danish): http://www.justitsministeriet.dk/nyt-og-presse/pressemeddelelser/2019/justitsministeren-kan-nu-haedre-medarbejdere-med-medaljer
