The Order of the Diaconus is the highest chivalric order in the Kingdom of Ikonia founded by the King Cameron I on 2 January 2019 to recognize the garter on the royal coat of arms of Ikonia. With 12 members, it is the second-most awarded order in Ikonia.
The order's emblem is a cyan belt, with the words IKONIA•LIBERTATEM (Latin: Liberty for Ikonia) in black lettering.
The member, upon appointing, may wear a four-inch (10.16 cm)-wide sash worn over their left shoulder to their right hip. The arms of the Order may be worn on this sash on the left breast, unless in military uniform with medals. Also, a breast star may be worn with the sash, though not without.
In heraldry, if an alternate order is worn over the Diaconus, the neck badge, with the colored aqua from the belt that was awarded is worn.
The Order is considered a personal gift from the sovereign, where he doesn't require permission from government to appoint members. Membership consists of Knights or Ladies Companion, and various Supernumerary members. These include the Sovereign of the Order, Cameron I; various Royal Knights or Ladies Companion, all coming from the Royal House; and various Stranger Knights and Ladies Companion, which consists of foreign head of states that the Sovereign chooses.
