The medal is 44 mm across in a bronze patina in the shape of a four pointed star. Behind the star are two crossed swords, blades pointing upward. The raised monogram of the letters "RP" is found in the top arm of the star. In the middle of the star is the name of a country or a geographical area for operations. On the lower arm and between the upper arms are stylized laurel leaves. The reverse contains the two-line inscription "PACI SERVIO" (Service to peace) in the center of the star, with a place below for engraving dates of service.

The award is suspended on the ribbon in the color defined for each individual star, in a width of 35 mm, with a red stripe width of 4 mm through the center, which has white stripes on the sides of a width of 2 mm and symmetrically arranged along the edges of connected strips or stripes in the colors of the flag state or area.

Clasps may be awarded for a specific military operation or for repeated deployments. Clasps are horizontal bars 38 mm wide and 5 mm tall. They are in a dull, brown patina, with polished edges, a polished Arabic numeral, or the name of a specific military operation. Ribbon bars are identical to the ribbon suspending the star.
