The Military Order of Savoy was awarded for especially distinguished service in war. The first three classes had the royal crown above the cross. The Officer class had the cross suspended from a "trophy" of flags. The lowest class, the Knight's class, had the cross suspended from a simple ring. The Knight's class was awarded to sailors as well as soldiers. The ribbon had three equal stripes of navy/red/navy.

With the fall of the monarchy, the Military Order of Savoy was renamed the Order of Military Merit of Italy.
