The Order of the Blazing Sun was introduced in YE 30.


The requirements to recieve this award are:

The Order of the Blazing Sun is a golden eight-ray sunburst medallion with a Star Army Hinomaru at its center. The medal hangs from a moiré silk ribbon that measures 30mm wide and 500mm in length. The ribbon is colored Ketsurui crimson, and overlaid with thin vertical stripes of blood red, dark red, and navy blue. It is worn around the neck as part of the Type 35 Class A formal uniform.

Service Ribbon A service ribbon variant is also issued with the medal, and is made from the same fabric pattern as the neck ribbon. It can be worn in lieu of the neck order as part of Class A formal dress, and is usually worn in this way for non-ceremonial functions that still call for Class A attire. The service ribbon is placed second in the order of precedence behind the Yui's Blood Medallion.
