Two Grand Officer Stars with non-enameled inscriptions. De Greef of Brussels made the Civilian Division version. Arthus Bertrand of Paris made the Military Division version. As the relationship between Mobutu and the Belgian authorities chilled, the contract for the manufacture of Zaire's medals was moved to the French firm. In part this also was done to recognize France's support during the internal insurrections in Zaire.
