The Order of Adolph of Nassau, fully Ordre du Mérite Civil et Militaire d'Adolphe de Nassau ("Civil and Military Order of Merit of Adolph of Nassau") is a military decoration of Luxembourg which was created in the year 1858 by Duke Adolph of Nassau. The award recognizes those persons who have performed meritorious actions or heroic deeds in the name of Luxembourg. The award is issued in the following degrees: -Badge of the Grand Cross of the Order of Adolph of Nassau; Grand Cross;  Grand Officer;  Commander; Officer; Knight The grades of Commander, Officer, and Knight may be awarded with the upgrade of crosses (for combat service) or crown (for extreme meritorious actions).

The Order of Adolph of Nassau may also be issued to foreigners and is common as a diplomatic order. The decoration was issued as well in World War II to a handful of allied officers who had helped liberate Luxembourg from the rule of Nazi Germany. Because of the small size of Luxembourg, and its minor role as a campaign theater, the Order of Adolph of Nassau was not issued as frequently as other major World War II orders, such as the Croix de Guerre.
