The Order of Parental Glory (Russian: Орден «Родительская Слава») is a state award of the Russian Federation. It was established on May 13, 2008 by presidential decree 775[1] to reward deserving parents of exceptionally large families. It can trace its origins to the Soviet Order "Mother Heroine". The Order's statute was amended on September 7, 2010 by presidential decree 1099,[2] the same document that established the Medal of the Order of Parental Glory.

Award statute[edit]

The Order of Parental Glory is awarded to parents or adoptive parents who are married, in a civil union, or in the case of single-parent families, to one of the parents or adoptive parents who are/is raising, or have raised seven or more children as citizens of the Russian Federation. For leading a healthy family life, being socially responsible, providing an adequate level of health care, education, physical, spiritual and moral development of the children, full and harmonious development of their personality, and setting an example to strengthen the institution of the family and child rearing.[3]

The award is made when the seventh child reaches the age of three, and in the presence of the other living children, except in the cases of older children who were killed or missing in action in defence of the Fatherland or its interests, in the performance of military, official or civic duties, who died as a result of injury, concussion or disease received in these circumstances, either because of occupational injury or illness.[3]

The Russian Federation Order of Precedence dictates that the Order of Parental Glory is to be worn on the left breast with other orders and medals immediately after the Order of Friendship.[4]

Award description[edit]

The badge of the Order is a 70 mm wide gilt silver cross pattée, with arms that are flared towards the concave outer ends. The cross obverse is enamelled in blue. At its center is a circular red enamelled medallion edged in gold and bearing the gilded coat of arms of the Russian Federation. A green enamelled laurel wreath passes under and near the outer ends of the cross. Golden rays extend between the cross's arms to the laurel wreath. The reverse is plain (golden) and bears the award serial number.[3]

A smaller 40 mm wide badge of the Order is also given for wear in special circumstances. The gentlemen's badge is suspended by a ring through the badge suspension loop from a standard Russian pentagonal mount covered by an 24 mm wide overlapping white silk moiré ribbon with two 1,5 mm wide light blue stripes situated 8 mm from the ribbon outer edge. The ladies' badge hangs from a bow made of the same ribbon. Both are worn on the left breast.[3]

Medal of the Order[edit]

The Medal of the Order of Parental Glory was established on September 7, 2010 by presidential decree 1099.[2] Its award criteria differ from those of the main Order only in the number of children required. The Medal of the Order of Parental Glory is awarded for raising four children, as opposed to seven for the Order, and the remainder of the statute is the same.[6]

The Medal of the Order of Parental Glory is made of gilt silver and is 32mm in diameter. The obverse has a reproduction (without enamels) of the badge of the Order of Parental Glory. The reverse is plain with the central inscription "FOR RAISING CHILDREN" (Russian: "ЗА ВОСПИТАНИЕ ДЕТЕЙ"). The medal hangs from the same mount and ribbon as the Order's smaller badge destined for wear.[6]

The Russian Federation Order of Precedence dictates that the Medal of Parental Glory is to be worn on the left breast with other medals immediately after the Medal "For Merit in Space Exploration".[4]
