Massive eight-pointed rayed silver star; the face with a silver escutcheon bearing a gilt-edged red enamel five-pointed star on crossed silver swords and five upright gilt torches with red enamel flames, all imposed on a circular laurel wreath; the reverse plain with vertical pin for wear, with maker’s mark; diameter 64.88mm (2.55 inches), weight 62.82 grams (2.2 oz); with ribbon bar with pin for wear; in somewhat worn original fitted embossed case of issue, loose at the hinge. The Order was instituted on 29 December 1951 (with effect from 1 January 1952) by the Parliament of Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia in three classes to be awarded to senior military and also civilians, both Yugoslav and foreign, for military merit. Earlier examples, such as this one, have five torches whilst later ones have six. In 1998 the Order was renamed the Order of Defence and Security. It is now redundant.
