The Order of Kim Il-sung is the highest order of North Korea, along with the Order of Kim Jong-il.[2]

The order was instituted on 20 March 1972[3] on the occasion of the 60th birthday of Kim Il-sung.[4] According to North Korean sources, Kim Jong-il was to be the first recipient but he declined and received the honor only in 1979.[4] The order is traditionally awarded on 15 April every year[1] for "outstanding services to the Republic of the Korean nation and communism".[5] It can be awarded to individuals, working organizations, or establishments of education.

There is also a medal of Kim Il-sung, known as the Kim Il-sung Prize.
