Other foreign decorations

Medals awarded for military skills

These decorations are most often divided in three classes: bronze, silver and gold. They are most often awarded as metal badges, but if the gold requirements are met over several years a medal is awarded.

Civil medals of skill

These share most of the characteristics of the badges and medals awarded for military skills, but the requirements may vary more. They may only be worn on military uniform as medals.

Other approved Norwegian medals

No longer awarded
