French Médaille d’Honneur des Douanes.


The Médaille d’Honneur des Douanes (Customs medal of Honour), was created by decree of June 14 1894 by President Sadi Carnot (1837-1894), which instituted a decoration initially intended to reward the agents of the brigades.

The Customs Medal of Honour is awarded on an exceptional basis for acts of courage, outstanding business or merit to civil servants with at least twenty years of long and irreproachable service.

The medal can also be awarded for exceptional sporting events.
