The existing barnstar associated with this project is the Germany Barnstar of National Merit. It comes in two variations, both of which are displayed in this section. Both of these versions are available to be given out to members whose work regarding the project is found by other members to be particularly deserving of recognition. However, please award a user only one or the other barnstar at a time. The second variation of the barnstar can always be given out later, when and if that same user's contributions are found to deserve another barnstar.
