Orders, decorations, and medals of Montecara
The Montecaran honors system is the city-state's means of formal acknowledgement for meritorious deeds and public service.
Montecara is unusual in making (with few exceptions) no distinction between civil and military decorations. Anyone, soldier or civilian, and in many cases citizen or foreigner, may be awarded any honor to which they are entitled.
|Order of the Civic Crown||For exemplary and invaluable service to Montecara and her people.|
|Order of the Leopard||For advancing the military and trade interests of Montecara in Coius. No longer awarded.|
The highest honor conferred by the State of Montecara is the Order of the Civic Crown (Montecaran: Òrden da coròna cìvica). It is conferred only by law, requiring the consent of both the Popular Assembly and the Senate after nomination by the Colegio. The recipient of a civic crown must be a distinguished and exemplary citizen of Montecara or, in the extraordinary case of an award to a foreigner, to have rendered invaluable service to the state and its people.
