The Order of Sawatch was an order of chivalry within the Empire of Agber and the former Sawatch Emirate. The intention of the Order was to honor those who provided a service to the Emirate. It was created on 31 January 2014 as the first and highest order of the newly established Sawatch. It was replaced as the nation's highest honor on 22 June 2020, and then dissolved with the Emirate on 28 September of that same year.

There were three classes of the Order, each with their own unique regalia:

  • Knight/Dame which was denoted by the wear of a medallion suspended from a blue and white drape ribbon.
  • Knight/Dame Commander which was denoted by the wear of a medallion of the order affixed to a blue and white necklet. Dames Commander could elect to wear the medallion attached to a blue and white bow.
  • Knight/Dame Grand Star which was denoted by the wear of the star of the order and a blue and white sash, worn from the right shoulder to the left hip. This rank was known as Knight or Dame Grand Cross from its creation until 20 June 2020.

Sovereign of the Order

The last Sovereign and font of honor for the order was Emir Isaac, as then reigning monarch of Sawatch. While his rank of Knight Grand Star officially was equal in precedence with others who held that rank, his status as Member Ex-Officio gave him functional precedence within the order.
