The Holy Military Order of Saint Polycarpus (Dutch: "Heilige Militaire Orde van Sint Polycarpus") is a chivalric order of the Grand Duchy of Flandrensis designed by Niels I of Flandrensis, which was the first Grandmaster of the Order. It was established with the foundation of the Crown Colony of Flandrensis, later renamed in the Duchy of Flauma.

Currently, the Holy Military Order is awarded for appreciation towards the citizens and the government of Flandrensis, especially for meritorious service in public employment.

The Order is also eligible for bestowal to foreign nationals and was already awarded to personnel of other countries that had relations with Flandrensis.

The Holy Military Order is awarded by Grand Ducal Decree.
