Order of Wasa
The Royal Order of Vasa (Kungliga Vasaorden) was a Swedish order of chivalry, awarded to citizens of Sweden for service to state and society especially in the fields of agriculture, mining and commerce. It was instituted on 29 May 1772 by King Gustav III. It was unrestricted by birth or education and could therefore be awarded to anyone (as opposed to the Order of the Polar Star, which was intended as a reward for the learned professions). It was the most junior of all the Swedish orders. It was often awarded to Norwegian subjects of the dual monarchy until Oscar I founded the Norwegian Order of St. Olav in 1847. Since 1974 the order is no longer conferred: officially it has been declared an order in "resting", along with the Order of the Sword.
The Order had five classes:
- Commander Grand Cross - wears the badge on a collar (chain) or on a sash on the right shoulder, plus the star on the left chest;
- Commander 1st Class - wears the badge on a necklet, plus the star on the left chest;
- Commander - wears the badge on a necklet;
- Knight 1st Class (Member 1st Class for women and clergymen) - wears the badge on a ribbon on the left chest;
- Knight (Member for women and clergymen) - wears the badge on a ribbon on the left chest;
Additionally, the Badge of Vasa and the Medal of Vasa, were both worn on a ribbon on the left chest.
