United Nations Medal (UNPROFOR)

The United Nations Medal (UNPROFOR) was awarded to those who served as part of the United Nations Protection Force in former Yugoslavia between 1992 and 1995. UNPROFOR’s mandate included the demilitarisation and monitoring of UN safe areas and delivery of humanitarian relief. The UNPROFOR ribbon is blue with a central red stripe edged in white, a green stripe on the left, and a brown stripe on the right. The background of the ribbon is UN blue, with a central wide band of red representing the United Nations Protected Areas (UPAs), flanked by thin stripes of white. A narrow band of green on the left represents forests and on the right side a narrow band of brown represents the mountains.
