BURUNDI REPUBLIC ORDER PRESIDENTIAL COLLAR

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

On Monday 8 June, President Pierre Nkurunziza of Burundi passed away.

This forum is NOT the place to discuss politic issues, or any issues involving action of politician, but only Order, Medal & Rank Insignia.

Since yesterday I did some research on him, and I found these 2 photo, which were likely taken after President Nkurunziza was elected for the 3rd time in 2015.

He is wearing a Presidential Collar. We can see that this collar was a bit inspired by the Collar of the Legion of Honor, which is worn only by the President of the French Republic, because of the letters R B (for République du Burundi ), (ie on the french Legion of Honor Collar, the suspension bear the letters R F for République Française ). It is likely that this collar was designed only to be worn by President Nkurunziza, because no photographic evidence that former President of Burundi wore this insignia.

If any one has a better photo of this collar, he is most welcome to post it here. Ilya maybe ??

Regards to all.

Hello Gentlemen,

It is actually Grand Collar of the Nationals Orders : Grand Collier des Ordres Nationaux (in french)
