Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday conferred Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the country’s highest State honour, ‘Order of the Nile’, in Cairo. In the past nine years of tenure, PM Modi received many international awards. This is the 13th such highest State honour that various countries across the world have conferred upon PM Modi.

PM Modi is on his maiden State visit to Egypt. His visit to the African country is the first by an Indian Prime Minister since 1997. Earlier today, PM Modi held talks with President Sisi and both leaders signed an MoU.

The ‘Order of the Nile’, is Egypt’s highest State honour. According to the Arab Republic of Egypt Presidency’s website, the ‘Order of the Nile’ is given to Egyptians and foreigners who offer Egypt or humanity invaluable services.

The Order of the Nile is a pure gold collar consisting of three square gold units on which there are Pharaonic symbols. The first unit resembles the idea of protecting the State against evils, the second one resembles prosperity and happiness brought by the Nile and the third one refers to wealth and endurance.

The units are connected to one another by a circular gold flower decorated with turquoise and ruby. Hanging from the collar is a hexagonal pendant decorated with flowers of the Pharaonic style, and turquoise and ruby gems.

In the middle of the pendant, there is a protruding symbol representing the Nile that brings together the North (represented by the Papyrus) and the South (represented by the Lotus), the website said. – India Today
