Award of Merit

The Coventry Award of Merit was launched by the  Council in the 1960s.

It is a way of recognising and honouring personal behaviour that reflects the highest ideals of citizenship or outstanding performance in any field of human endeavour and which improves the good name of Coventry and inspires its residents.

The Award has previously taken the form of a citation under the Common Seal, together with a presentation of a gold medallion pendant from a ribbon in the city's colours. The motif on the medallion is the phoenix, symbolising the resurgence of Coventry from the flames of the Blitz.
