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.[3]
