There is a silver maple leaf (signifying that it stands for Member of the Order of Canada) soldered onto the centre of the snowflake. The maple leaf is surrounded by a red enamel ring bearing the motto of the order “DESIDERANTES MELIOREM PATRIAM” (meaning “They desire a better country”) in silver lettering. The circle is topped by a crown (white, red, and turquoise) enamel simulating jewels edged in silver) of St. Edward, symbolizing that the order is headed by a sovereign. At the top of the snowflake badge there is a silver metal suspension ring. A grosgrain ribbon, white, bordered in red stripes similar to the Canadian flag, is passed through the ring and attached to a silver pin bar. The reverse side is plain silver except for the word “CANADA” and “1181” underneath, printed on the centre disc. Directly below on one of the snowflake points are some numbers and underneath that the word “RIDEAU”. On the top reverse side of the pin bar there is a horizontal hinged pin with a swivel-locking safety catch, underneath which “RIDEAU” is printed. The pin bar has an opening for the ribbon to pass through and two holes at the bottom where the ribbon is sewn to the pin bar with red thread.(a,b) The two small lapel pins (1cm high,1cm wide) are white enamel stylized snowflakes edged in silver with a silver maple leaf in the centre. On the back there is one small spike and one larger spike soldered onto the medal with a tie-tack style (spike and clutch closure attachment) pin closure. The medal and lapel pins are stored in a hinged black leatherette case lined in blue satin; the medal (a) rests in a depression, the lapel pins have no depressions for storage, the cover is lined in white satin, the letters “C.M.” in gold on outside lid.
