Garth has so far awarded two figures who have contributed to these relations and represent a strong bond between the two countries.

The first was Doctor Monika Gullerová, who is working at the University of Oxford as an expert whose DNA research helps the treatment of cancer patients.

The second award was granted to Major General Ivan Schwarz in memoriam, who served as Royal Air Force pilot during World War II and was one of the most successful Czechoslovak pilots.
