Earth Kingdom emblem
Kyoshi Medal of Freedom

The Kyoshi Medal of Freedom was presented by Earth King Wu to Kuvira for her efforts in stabilizing the Earth Kingdom.

The Kyoshi Medal of Freedom is an ornate golden medal, shaped like the Earth Kingdom symbol with four lotus petals. It is considered to be the highest honor in the nation.[1]


Earth King Wu presented Kuvira with the ornate piece of jewelry in 174 AG at his own coronation for her efforts in unifying and stabilizing the Earth Kingdom. The metalbender initially accepted the award, though while giving a speech in which she denounced Wu's power and declared an "Earth Empire" under her rule, she symbolically crushed the medal to emphasize that anyone who would oppose her new nation would suffer the same fate.[1]
