The outer bands of red and blue represent the services, Merchant Navy and the involvement of SSAFA whilst the two diamond white bands reflect the 75th anniversary of victory and peace. The theme of the Restoration of Peace Medal is continued with the two centre bands of rich claret representing life separated by a band of gold for the dawn of a new day. The ribbon is fitted to the same suspender with its unusual feature of the dove of peace rising in flight and carrying in its beak a palm branch. The medal is supplied on a concealed single pin, ready to wear with pride, not alongside campaign medals or gallantry decorations, but separately and distinctively.>
