Ribbon of the Order of the Desert Star, First Class

The Order of the Desert Star is an order of merit which was formerly bestowed by the Republic of Molossia. It was issued to thirteen individuals by the National Assembly on 27 May 2000, and has not been issued since.[1] President Kevin Baugh has since stated that the Order was mostly created in order to give himself medals. It is the only honour in Molossia to be divided into two tiers: First Class and Second Class. Today, the Order of the Desert Star, whilst still recognised, is not actively awarded, and has largely been superseded by the Order of the Mustang and medals such as the Friendship Medal and the Desert Palm.

The Molossia website states:

In recognition for the service, loyalty, and dedication of the Molossian People.
