Covid-19 Medal instituted


To be awarded to Order of Malta members and volunteers who have risked their health

To express gratitude to those who provide assistance in an emergency situation and to give a tangible sign of the special contribution made by members and volunteers in specific campaigns, the Sovereign Council has established the ‘Sovereign Order of Malta Campaign Medal’, which complements the Order pro Merito Melitensi.

Given the global presence of the Sovereign Order of Malta in dealing with the pandemic, the first Campaign Medal is being awarded for the Covid-19 emergency. It acknowledges the Order’s members and volunteers who have put their health at risk to bring aid to those directly or indirectly affected by the virus.

The Grand Magistry will assess recipients of the medal – whose metal bar bears the inscription ‘Covid-19′ – proposed by the Order of Malta’s Grand Priories, National Associations and Relief Corps.

The medal must only be worn on military ceremonial uniforms and the ribbon on service uniforms, after the insignia of the Sovereign Order of Malta and other Merito Melitense decorations.
