Description

The Timor-Leste Solidarity Medal is a foreign military award presented by the government of Timor-Leste (formerly known as East Timor) to recognize the service of foreign military personnel and civilians who have contributed to the stabilization, peacekeeping, and development efforts in the country. The medal was instituted in 2009 as a symbol of gratitude for the support provided by foreign forces and individuals who assisted in the establishment and maintenance of peace, security, and stability in Timor-Leste during and after its struggle for independence.

The award is open to personnel from various countries who have made significant contributions to the country's stabilization and development.

Design

The medal is designed as a circular, gold-colored medallion, featuring the coat of arms of Timor-Leste on the obverse, surrounded by the inscription "REPÚBLICA DEMOCRÁTICA DE TIMOR-LESTE" (Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste). The reverse of the medal displays the words "MEDALHA DA SOLIDARIEDADE" (Solidarity Medal) within a wreath of laurel leaves, symbolizing victory and achievement.
