UN Congo (ONUC 2) Full Size Medal

ONUC2 was established initially in July 1960 to ensure the withdrawal of Belgian forces from the Congo, to assist the Government in maintaining law and order, and to provide technical assistance. The function of ONUC was subsequently modified to include maintaining the territorial integrity and the political independence of the Congo, preventing the occurrence of civil war, and securing the removal of all foreign military, paramilitary and advisory personnel not under the United Nations Command, and all mercenaries. On completion of the mandate, the Mission was withdrawn in June 1964.

Each United Nations medal is identical in design, with a unique ribbon to identify the specific mission. The ONUC2 mission ribbon carries a broad centre band of green, symbolic of hope and to represent the Congo Basin. The centre band is flanked by two narrow white stripes, and at either end are two stripes of UN blue.

Qualifying time for the medal is 90 days of service in the Mission. Subsequent tours of the same regions would be denoted with a numeral attached to the ribbon.

United Nations medals are not engraved.

All official medals are sent loose on the ribbon unless medal mounting is also purchased on the same order.
