    I know it’s Ukrainian, but I just don’t have the "modern" Ukrainian sources. So, what is this order?

    It is not one of the current ‘state’ orders… possibly a church one?

    It’s not among those ecclesiastical orders I can find illustrated. And it seems a bit secular in design. I think of ecclesiastical orders from that part of the world having much more traditional religious symbols than blue gemstones.
    But I can’t keep up with the creation of new awards in the former USSR states.

    An alternative thought is that it is an unofficial award from a group of Ukrainian ‘nobility’ or some such…

    I’m on Megan’s side. Potentially, some sort of badge depicting a member of the Ukrainian nobility/aristocracy. Could be a one off prototype even…

    I checked on Ukrainian Google and Wiki… Nada, except for more than a few new completely bogus Orders.

    I checked the web sites of the few Ukrainian makers I know of, also no joy, sorry.

    Francois, this badge – for those who have no place to put money. It reads – "The nobility of Ukraine", which simply does not exist. Buy and wear, let all jealous. Price it – zero. You can also order a jeweler order in which you can write "King of Canada" and wear it on health :lol:

    Megan is right. The words on the badge read "nobility of Ukraine".

    King of Canada? I like the sound of that… Not possible with QEII and heirs but keep those good ideas coming Yuri! ;)

    It is probably a hereditary society like the Baronial Order of the Magna Charta (for descendants of the signing barons) or the Colonial Order of the Crown (for descendant of Charlemagne). There is a also a Lithuanian Nobility Society or Lithuanian Royal/Nobility Association with over 500 members, over 250 of whom have claimed/demonstrated descent from nobility. Similarly there is a Polish Nobility Association, so why not a Ukrainian Nobility Association?
