Arctic Star - the design

Posted on Tue, 26 February 2013 by Phil Mussell - General News, Medal News

Readers of the Editorial in February's MEDAL NEWS will know that we aren't necessarily fans of the new Arctic Star (or rather what it represents in medal terms and what it could mean for the future) however whatever we think it is news so we must report it! According to the Daily Mail's website this is what the star will look like, that will be similar to our February front cover mock up then....! The ribbon, apparently represents the Air Force (light blue) the Navy (dark blue) and the Merchant Navy (red) with the white representing the ice of the Arctic Circle. Let's hope the actual ribbon looks better than this first impression...!
