The Ikonian honors system medallion

The Orders, decorations, and medals of Ikonia comprises a complex system of decorations awarded by the Monarchy of Ikonia in name of the state. The Ikonian honors system goes back to 2019 with the establishment of the Order of the Diaconus. The medals, pre and post-nominals, and decorations (including military ones) are all handled by the Ikonian Honours System, which is a child of the Royal Residence.

The Ikonian honours system is a means of rewarding individuals' personal bravery, achievement or service to the Kingdom and as such, consists of orders and decorations, such as titles and orders, in recognition to merit in terms of deeds, achievements and services to the country. It was originally based off the Baustralian honours system before being revamped multiple times in 2019, 2020, and most recently in 2021.

As the head of state, the Ikonian monarch remains the fons honorum.
