The Order of Lenin (Russian: Орден Ленина, Orden Lenina),

named after the leader of the Russian October Revolution,

was the highest decoration bestowed by the Soviet Union.

The order was awarded to:

  • Civilians for outstanding services rendered to the State,
  • Members of the armed forces for exemplary service,
  • Those who promoted friendship and cooperation between peoples

and in strengthening peace

  • Those with meritorious services to the Soviet state and society

From 1944 to 1957, before the institution of specific length of service medals,

the Order of Lenin was also used to reward 25 years of conspicuous military service.

It was also bestowed on cities, companies,

factories, regions, military units and ships. Corporate entities, factories,

various educational institutions and military units

who received the said Order applied the full

name of the order into their official titles.

The Order of Georgi Dimitrov (or Order of Georgy Dimitrov, Bul: Орден Георги Димитров) was the highest award of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria. It was instituted on 17 June 1950 and awarded to Bulgarians and foreigners for outstanding services to the defence and freedom of Bulgaria, or for contributions to socialism.The award was the Bulgarian equivalent of the Order of Lenin, whose general design it imitated.

The award was named after Georgi Dimitrov, the pre-eminent Bulgarian communist of the inter-war and immediate post-war years.

About 4,500 awards were made. The order was automatically awarded to recipients of the Hero of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria and Hero of Socialist Labour titles. The award was withdrawn on 5 April 1991.

The medal consisted of a portrait of Dimitrov, surrounded by wreaths of grain, above a label with Dimitrov’s name and topped by a small five-pointed star. It was of gilt, apart from the immediate background to Dimitrov’s likeness, star and the name label, which were coloured dark red. It was hung on a dark red ribbon with red edges. It was originally designed by K. Lazarov and modified by O. Odabashyan.
