The award is a way for the Falkland Islands Government (FIG) to recognise people with connections with the Falkland Islands who have, by their loyalty and meritorious conduct, provided services of exceptional benefit to the people of the Falkland Islands.

The Queen’s Certificate and its accompanying Badge of Honour will be awarded by His Excellency the Governor, acting on the advice of Executive Council, on or around Falkland Day (14 August). The number of recipients is normally restricted to three a year and the names of Queen’s Certificate recipients is published in the FIG’s Official Gazette.
