The Order was instituted in 1947 in six classes to be awarded to naval personnel, both Colombian and foreign, for acts of courage or outstanding service to maritime science or naval development. Admiral José Prudencio Padilla López (1784-1828) was a prominent Colombian naval commander during the wars of independence against Spain.
