Order of the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, knight (Orden de la República Oriental del Uruguay, caballero), issued 1984-1985
White-enamel-edged blue enamel Latin cross with graduated ribbed silver rays with forked ends between the arms and with loop and ring for ribbon suspension; the face with the polychrome enamel arms of Uruguay imposed centrally, a white enamel ribbon below inscribed ‘ORDEN DE LA REPUBLICA’; the reverse plain; a small chip to the blue enamel of the lower right quarter of the escutcheon; on original ribbon with gilt pasador top bar mounted for wear. The Order was instituted by Law Nº 15.529 of 2 March 1984 in six grades to be awarded ‘a personalidades extranjeras en reconocimiento por actos meritorios o extraordinarios prestados al país o en base a reciprocidad’ (to foreign persons in recognition of meritorious acts or extraordinary contributions to the country or in reciprocity). The insignia are believed to have been made by Cejalvo of Madrid. The Order fell into disuse very soon after its institution when elections were held and a democratic government replaced the ruling military-civilian junta. As a result, the Order is extremely rare in all grades.
