Ribbons of the Order of the Lion

The Order of the Lion is a order of chivalry founded in Persenburg by Emperor-King Oscar of Karnia-Ruthenia in 2016. The current Sovereign of the Order is also its founder, the Emperor-King of Karnia-Ruthenia. It is awarded to both military personnel and civilians, to recognize valor in combat, excellence in military or civil leadership, long and faithful service to the Empire or other achievements.

Origin

The first known report about the Order dates back to 26 May 2016, when it was mentioned in the heraldic description of the new coat of arms of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire. Despite not having been officially established on that date, it goes back to a previous idea. The greatest proof of this is that it consists of official form already inserted in the work of the new armorial; ie its design is older, although having an unspecified date. The probable date of creation of the order, however, is limited by the time gap between the signing of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016 on 10 May 2016 and the decree establishing the new national symbols of the Empire, issued on 26 May 2016[1]. Having been revealed at the same time, it is contemporary to the Order of the Edelweiss.

Precedence and privileges

The Order of the Lion does not confer upon its recipients any style or title, dut give precedence in Karno-Ruthenian honours system, being just after the Order of the Queen. However, it represents a personal token of high distinction and esteem from the Emperor-King.

Design

The collar of the Order consists in a riband that ends in the form of a bow in blue with red-white-red edges surrounded by two golden wreaths. The badge is a gold, white enamelled Maltese Cross; the oval-shaped central medallion depicts a black lion on a red background.
