The National Hero of Azerbaijan (Azerbaijani: Azərbaycan milli qəhrəmanı) is the highest national title in the Republic of Azerbaijan. The title was named the highest national award on March 25, 1992, and the "Qizil Ulduz" Medal awarded as a sign of receiving this title was established by a separate law in July 1992[1] The law on the title has been in effect since December 25, 1995. It can be awarded only once to the same person.[2]

The title is awarded for outstanding services of national importance to Azerbaijan in defense and strengthening of the state system and creation of important national values.

Soviet Azerbaijan[edit]

During the period of Soviet rule, Azerbaijan was incorporated into the Soviet Union as the Azerbaijan SSR. Hero of the Soviet Union (Russian: Герой Советского Союза, Geroy Sovyetskovo Soyuza) was the highest honorary title and the superior degree of distinction of the Soviet Union.

Hero of Socialist Labor (Russian: Герой Социалистического Труда, Geroy Sotsialisticheskogo Truda) was an honorary title in the Soviet Union and the highest degree of distinction for exceptional achievements in national economy and culture. It provided a similar status to the title Hero of the Soviet Union that was awarded for heroic deeds, but unlike the latter, was not awarded to foreign citizens.
