ng Haakon VII's Medal of Liberty (Norwegian: Haakon VIIs Frihetsmedalje) was established on 18 May 1945. The medal is awarded to Norwegian or foreign military or civilian personnel for significant service to Norway during World War II. This service need not have been in direct contact with the enemy.
Description of the Medal

The medal is bronze, circular and suspended from the ribbon by a stylised bronze ribbon folded at both ends.
The obverse bears the monogram of King Haakon VII over a letter V symbolising victory. This is surrounded by a circle of beads, outside of which is written ALT FOR NORGE 1940-1945 (ALL FOR NORWAY 1940-1945)
The reverse is plain apart from a wreath of oak leaves, tied with a ribbon at the base.
The ribbon is plain dark blue. When ribbons only are worn, the ribbon bears the King's monogram in bronze.
