Liberation of Kuwait

Liberation of Kuwait Issued by Kuwait

Liberation of Kuwait

      The Wisam Al-Tahrir (Arabic: وسام التحرير‎‎ Wisām al-Taḥrīr) (Liberation Medal) was issued by the government of Kuwait for service during the Liberation of Kuwait campaign.
      The Kuwait Liberation Medal was approved by the Kuwait Council of Ministers for award in five classes, generally according to the rank of the recipient. The medal was offered by the Chief of Staff of the Kuwait Armed Forces on July 16, 1994.

      A nation of seafarers and ship builders, Kuwait chose as their coat of arms, the traditional dhow. Falconry is the sport of Kings in the Persian Gulf, and the falcon in the arms is seen as a symbol of Kuwaiti prowess. The official symbolism of the colors is that black symbolizes battlefields, white is for deeds, green is for the meadows, and red is for the blood of Kuwait's enemies.

      NB: So a medal issued for the liberation of Kuwait by the government of Kuwait is considered of lower importance by the allies than a medal issued by a 3rd party i.e. Saudi Arabia? Go figure!
