Hi, Taz

Some question:
1, There is no Freedom and Independence Order (3rd Class)
2, Maybe Medal of Agriculture and Medal of Agricultural Work are the same.
3, I have never seen Medal of Friendship, but I can't determine there isn't.
4, There are other orders or medals are not listed in this list.

At the same time, I don't think there can be a precedence list of DPRK ODM, because there are different ODMs awarded to different field. It is a tree list, not a line list.

Hope to discuss with you. Thanks!

Hello,
Based on the observations I have made on a quite extensive collection of DPRK military pictures, I propose you the following order of precedence:

Order of Kim Il Sung
Gold Star Medal of the Hero of the Republic
Gold Star Medal of the Hero of Labour
Order of the National Flag (1st Class)
Freedom and Independence Order (1st Class)
Order of Labour
Foundation of the DPRK Commemorative Order
KPA Commemorative Order
Order of Military Service Honor (1st Class)
KPA 60th Anniversary Commemorative Order
Order of the 40th Anniversary of Fatherland Liberation
Order of the National Flag (2nd Class)
Freedom and Independence Order (2nd Class)
Order of the Three Great Revolutions
Order of Military Service Honor (2nd Class)
Soldier's Honor Order (1st Class)
Order of the National Flag (3rd Class)
Order of Military Service Honor (3rd Class)
Soldier's Honor Order (2nd Class)
5th of March Commemorative Order
Fatherland Liberation Commemorative Medal
Foundation of the DPRK Commemorative Medal
Medal of Military Merit
Military Service Honor Medal
Meritious Service Medal
KPA 60th Anniversary Commemorative Medal
Miltary Supply Medal (3 classes)

I’m less sure for the medals.

On the last line the two medals without references are the Military service honor medal and the Military supply medal (2nd class)

Re: Precedence of DPKR Orders and Medals

I second Lapa. You´ve done a superb job.

BTW, the military supply medal has 3 classes. I presume their order of precedence is one after the other.

I have made this order on the base of my observations (many pictures of not so glamourous breasts:D), I'm less sure for the last line, but the three classes of the military supply seems at the bottom (may be it's more for civilians than military personel??).

Re: Precedence of DPKR Orders and Medals

I´m not 100% sure neither about the order of precedence, but since their classes stand for service years (they have their respective amount on the bottom), I´d say it´s just like everywhere else.

Democratic People's Republic Of Korea Ribbons Guide

Lukasz' well-known site is up and running, His DPRK page is:

Orders and Medals of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea

He does need to do some updating and he has it on his "to do" list.

Re: Precedence of DPKR Orders and Medals

The DPRK order of precedence for wearing has changed. Now the left side of uniform is for "Merit" awards (such as Hero Star, Orders Kim Il-Sung, National Flag, Labour, etc., Medals "For Military Merits", "For Merits", etc.) and the right side is for commemorative awards only (Commemorative Order "Foundation Of The Korean People's Army", Commemorative Medal "Military Parade" etc.). I believe the Commemorative Orders are ranked in creation date with the Commemorative Medals below them also in creation date. A long standing military officer will have both sides covered but the commonly seen in the press, young soldiers usually just have a Commemorative Medal on the right chest. Hopefully this helps you all with recognition of DPRK awards as some of those uniforms are covered on both sides. Also if the left hand side is full the "overflow" of awards are placed under their Commemorative awards, so the Order Of The National Flag 3rd Class can often be found under the Commemorative Orders.
