The system of orders and medals of the Republic of Macedonia (Macedonian: Ордени и медали на Република Македонија) is regulated by the Law on Awarding Decorations and Recognitions of the Republic of Macedonia. The President of the Republic of Macedonia awards all orders and medals on behalf of the nation.[1] Awards recommendations are received and reviewed by the Commission on Awarding Decorations and Recognitions, a 14 member body appointed by the president to assist him in carrying out the laws related to orders and decorations.[2] Individuals and organizations, both Macedonian and foreign, are eligible for recognition by the state. Awards are made to recognize achievements in the fields of social, political, economic, or scientific-research works. Recognition may also be made for especially meritorious social and humanitarian aid. Other activities which may be recognized are contributions to the peaceful and stable development of the Republic of Macedonia, for contributions to democratic development, for outstanding achievements in work, or for great personal courage in defense of the Republic of Macedonia. Awards may be made posthumously.[3]
