It is conferred upon Estonian citizens (usually civil servants) who have rendered services in the local government or state administration, as well as to those who rendered service in the fields of education, science, the economy, sports, culture and other community services. It is also conferred upon foreigners for meritorious service to Estonia. It may be awarded posthumously.
