SOVIET ORDER OF THE RED BANNER OF LABOR
The Order of the Red Banner of Labor was an order of the Soviet Union established to honor great deeds and services to the Soviet state and society in the fields of production, science, culture, literature, the arts, education, health, social and other spheres of labor activities. It is the labor counterpart of the military Order of the Red Banner. The Order of the Red Banner of Labour was the third-highest civil award in the Soviet Union after the Order of Lenin and Order of the October Revolution.
