United Nations Medal (UNTAC)

The United Nations Medal (UNTAC) was awarded to personnel for peacekeeping service in the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia. UNTAC operated between March 1992 – September 93. The UNTAC ribbon has stripes of dark green, navy, pale blue, and red, with a central white stripe. The green depicts the paddy fields which cover most of Cambodia. The white central stripe is flanked by red stripes representing all the factions’ flags. These are bordered on either side by a band of UN blue and Supreme National Council blue.
