Form: The first class is shaped as a five-angle star; it is of white enamel, gold like framed on the edge. The main star is 52 mm in diameter and lies on another, yellow colored star of 54 mm in diameter. In a gold medallion, on the enameled star, is placed Christo Botev's face image. Botev was a poet and National Hero (1848-1876). The image is surrounded by the following inscription: "For People's Liberty 1941-1944". The difference between the first and second classes is the red enamel of the five-angle star.

The third, last emission is with a left side-view of Botev's face. At first, the order is characterized by a screw back, but later on a red ribbon with one or two blue lines on the edge comes into use (for the first and second class respectively).
