NotesEdit

I. ^ Officially called Försvarsmaktens belöningsmedalj med svärd för internationella insatser[1] ("Swedish Armed Forces International Service Medal of Reward with Swords") but more often called Försvarsmaktens belöningsmedalj för internationella insatser in gold or silver (with swords),[6][7] ("Swedish Armed Forces International Service Medal of Reward in gold or silver (with swords)") and sometimes wrongly called Försvarsmaktens medalj för internationella insatser i guld i blått band med svärd i guld ("Swedish Armed Forces International Service Medal in Gold with blue ribbon and sword in gold")[4] which is a different medal which does not include swords.
