The Military Cross (post-nominal: MC) is a chivalric service medal given to troops of the Armed Forces of Ikonia. Extra bars are awarded each year of subsequent service. The Order has been given four times (including the Sovereign).

Criteria

The medal is awarded to officers and non-commissioned members of the Regular and Reserve forces, including honorary appointments. The medal may be awarded to persons with foreign service, provided that the individual has completed the full qualifying periods of service for each award.

Appearance

The ribbon is an red ribbon bar, with two white flanks and two light-blue lines in the center. The former designs consisted of a alternating pattern of yellow blue and white stripes, and another being a blue bar with three white stripes— that variation was heavily based off the Baustralian Forces Decoration.
