The Order of the Republic was instituted by governmental law in 1953 in commemoration of the reestablishment of the Republic of Egypt. The Order is conferred upon Egyptian citizens as well as foreigners in recognition of valuable services rendered to Egyptian and foreign blood princes and heads of government. Demonstrations of outstanding civil or military merit also qualify for the award of the Order. The Order is awarded in 5 classes plus a Collar. The class is dependent on the service recognized and the recipient’s status. The Military Order of the Republic is modelled after the Order of the Republic. The Order is also believed to have 2 associated Medals: the I and II Class of the Military Medal of the Republic.

The Officer is presented as the IV Class award of the Order.

The Officer features an obverse Arabic inscription which translates to “Republic" and is worn from a ribbon which features a rosette.

There are multiple versions of the Officer which vary by design and suspension. Early versions feature a depiction of a lily suspension surmounting the medallion while later versions instituted after 1972 feature an Egyptian Eagle or Hawk suspension.

There may be additional versions of the Officer not featured here.
