Sconnish Honours

THE HONOURS SYSTEM OF THE KINGDOM OF SCONE

The Sconnish Honours System is comprised of three distinct societies of honour in addition to the Baronetage, the degree of Knight Banneret, and the various honorary ranks of the symbolic King's Army and Royal Navy.  

These distinctions exist as means by which to thank and honour deserving Glennish men and women as well as Scone's friends for their service, loyalty, friendship, or generosity. 

Here is a brief look at the components of the Honours System:

THE MOST EXCELLENT ORDER OF SCONE

The first and most prestigious of the honours established by the Crown is the Most Excellent Order of Scone.

The Most Excellent Order of Scone was established by His Majesty King James on 5 March 2014. Membership of the exclusive Order of Scone is limited to only twelve knights or dames, plus the Sovereign, with investiture of the Order restricted to Sconnish subjects.  There is but one degree of membership, that of Companion. 

Companions of the Most Excellent Order of Scone are styled "Sir" or "Dame" and use the post-nominal lettres "CHM" which abbreviate "Companion of His Majesty." Companions are entitled to wear the insignia of the Order, which consist of a cordon of sky blue with the badge and a breast star bearing the blue cross of the Sconnish flag. 

Membership of the Most Excellent Order of Scone is in the gift of the Monarch, who is the Sovereign of the Order.

Named for the Kingdom of Scone's symbolic flower, the Most Honourable Order of the Sconnish Poppy was established as a means by which to honour deserving Sconnishmen and foreigners, alike.  Whereas the Order of Scone is exclusively restricted to twelve Sconnish subjects, membership of the Order of the Sconnish Poppy is unlimited and unrestricted.  The Order of the Sconnish Poppy provides the Crown with a convenient means by which to decorate friendly heads of state and other foreign persons of distinction.  

Non-Sconnish recipients of the Order of the Sconnish Poppy are not considered honourary, strangers, or supernumerary, but are instead fully and ordinarily ranked with their Sconnish fellows in one of two degrees, the higher degree of Grand Cordon and the secondary degree of Commander. 

As with Companions of the Order of Scone, members of the Order of the Sconnish Poppy entitled to no greater style are addressed as "Sir" or "Dame."  Members invested of the degree of Grand Cordon make use of the post-nominal lettres "GCSP," whereas Commanders of the Order are entitled to the lettres "CSP."

The insignia of a Grand Cordon of the Order consist of a cordon of crimson and a breast star featuring at its centre the symbol of the Red Poppy.
