THIS website is a brief introduction to South African orders, decorations and medals.

What you will find on this website are:

  • an overview of the honours system, covering its history, legal aspects, precedence, post-nominal letters, and literature;
  • listings, with brief descriptions and images of ribbons, of the various series of awards that have been established over the years – they are grouped into the categories of civil, military, police, prisons (correctional services), intelligence services, and "other" (local authorities, statutry bodies, private institutions, British and foreign).

Please enjoy the website!
