Its statute was amended by decree № 19 of January 6, 1999 and more lately by decree № 1099 of January 7, 2010 which defined its present status. The Russian Federation Order provides continuity from the Soviet Union's identically named Order. The Soviet Order of Honor was denoted by a gray yellow edged ribbon.
