The Order of the Banner of Work (Polish: Order Sztandaru Pracy) was a governmental award in Poland during the 20th-century era of the communist People's Republic of Poland.

The order was established by the Sejm (a chamber of the Polish parliament) on 2 July 1949. It was given in recognition of "unique achievements for the Nation and the Country". In 1960 the criteria for receiving this award were changed to "special achievements for building socialism in the People's Republic of Poland."

The Order was also awarded to institutions, and was automatically awarded to miners after 20 years of dedicated labour.
