The Civic Star (French: Étoile Civique) is a French award.[1]

It was established by the Académie française in 1930.[2]

The star distinguishes those who contribute to the enrichment of the community,[3] improvement of social life,and the progress of Humanity.[4] It is particularly for those whose lives are of hard work, sacrifice and would remain unknown without this award.[5] It is divided into four degrees: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Silver-gilt.[6]

The star's motto is Honorer les vertus civiques - Servir le prestige national ('To honor the civic virtues - Serving national prestige').
