Decoration of honor of the state of Tyrol

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Decoration of Honor of the State of Tyrol is an award given by the Austrian state of Tyrol . It shows the silver-gilded Tyrolean eagle , surrounded by an oval patinated silver hoop on which a ribbon bow with the inscription "AQUILA TIROLIS DIGNITATE HONESTO" is attached over the head of the eagle. It honors personalities who have made a contribution to Tyrol through political, economic, cultural or humanitarian engagement. The honorary badge was introduced by law on November 30, 1955 and is awarded annually by the Tyrolean provincial government on February 20, the anniversary of Andreas Hofer's death . The number of those who are awarded annually is limited to twelve, and South Tyroleans are traditionally also considered. The President of the Tyrolean Parliament and the Governor of Tyrol receive the badge of honor on the day of their election for life. The honorary badge and the certificate issued for it become the property of the recipient. There is no obligation to return it after his death, both can become the property of another person who, however, has no right to wear. Every holder of a badge of honor is entitled to wear the badge of honor as a pin or on a silver-gold-plated chain around his neck and to call himself the owner. There are no other privileges associated with the award.
