Орден "За Храбрость" учреждён 15 июня 1948 года указом Президиума Великого Народного собрания (важно отметить, что вплоть до 1950 года в Болгарии вручались ордена "За Храбрость" ещё царского образца"). Вручался военнослужащим (до лейтенанта включительно) и гражданским лицам "за особую храбрость во время боевых действий и за подвиги, совершённые во имя безопасности страны в мирное время". Орденом также могли быть награждены военнослужащие союзных государств.
