‘One Nation Under God’.
It consists of a magnificent breast star bearing the heraldic Coat of Arms of Jamaica on a red enamelled background in the center, and surrounded by the motto of the Order in gold lettering on green enamel.
Between the points of the star are gold representations of pineapples. The broad watered silk sash is in a brilliant red with narrow green ending.

The Most Honourable Sir Clifford Campbell (post humously)
The Most Honourable Sir Florizel Glasspole
The Most Honourable Sir Howard Cooke
The Most Honourable Sir Kenneth Hall
The Most Honourable Sir Patrick Allen

Prime Ministers -
Note again that ALL the Prime Ministers have not been listed above because some of them have been already conferred with the Order of National Hero. These include:
1. Norman Washington Manley and
2. Sir Alexander Bustamante
The above two would have already had the title of 'The Right Excellent.'
So it is important that you do not get it confused as to who wears what title.
This Order of Nation comes with the title 'The Most Honourable.'
