*The Medal of a liberated France was a decoration of the French Republic created by decree on 12 September 1947 and originally named the \"Medal of Gratitude of a Liberated France\" (French: \"Médaille de la Reconnaissance de la France Libérée\"). It was intended as a reward for French and foreign nationals that had made a notable contribution to the liberation of France from the German occupation.

A decree of 7 October 1947 defined the medal\'s design and added it would be awarded under the authority of the Minister for Veterans\' Affairs and Victims of War (French: Ministre des Anciens Combattants et Victimes de guerre) on advice from a board composed of twenty-one members including the President of the National Assembly, the Vice-President of the State Council, a representative of the National Council of the Resistance, a general officer and a representative of the Justice Ministry.

A later decree of 16 June 1948 gave it its present name and added a member from the Interior Ministry to the board charged with selecting recipients from the applications. A further decree of 4 June 1949 followed by ministerial instructions on 1 December 1950 redefined both the composition of the board and award prerequisites.

The Medal of a liberated France could be awarded:

To soldiers of the allied armies who participated in war operations on the soil of Metropolitan France or soil under French mandate between 3 September 1939 and 20 August 1945.

To soldiers of allied armies who served as liaison with the French forces between 18 June 1940 and 20 August 1945.

To French nationals who made a notable contribution to the liberation of Metropolitan France or soil under French mandate between 18 June 1940 and 20 August 1945.
