  1. If not stated otherwise, all Maldives' decorations were established in 1996.
  2. A peculiarity of MNDS decorations is that apart from medals there are also ribbons as lesser degree awards, which duplicate the structure of the medals.

This web page could never appear without the kind help of Mr. John Mc Meekin, whom I would like to express my gratitude.
