The Victoria Saltire is a medal awarded to heroes of the Turquoise Hill Zone.
The Turquoise Hill Zone Freedom Fighters (listed above) were awarded the honour for their part in defending their home from Doctor Robotnik's invasion. One such occasion was displayed during The Battle For Mobius, as reported on by Sally Acorn (whilst strangling a Newtron). After being given the prize by the Zone Leader, Tux revealed that Tufftee had been beaten and captured several times but kept coming back for more.
The name is a reference to the Victoria Cross.
