Order of the Lion of Finland

THE FIVE SENIOR DECORATION CLASSES, PRO FINLANDIA MEDAL AND CROSS OF MERIT OF THE ORDER OF THE LION OF FINLAND (FL) ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  • Grand Cross (FL GC)
  • Commander First Class (FL C I)
  • Commander (FL C)

  • Pro Finlandia Medal (FL PF)

  • Knight First Class (FL K I)
  • Knight (FL K)

  • Cross of Merit (FL Cm)

The cross size and ribbon width are at their greatest for the Grand Cross and are reduced for the Commander First Class and Commander. The ribbon width for Knights is narrower still, but remains at this width for all decorations down to Medals.

Once the ribbon is sewn in place, the total height of a full-size decoration with its ribbon should be about 10 cm. The corresponding height of miniatures should be about 5 cm.

As a special mark of honour, an FL Knight First Class and Knight may be conferred with a clasp. The clasps of the FL Knight First Class and Knight are in the shape of the Olympic Games symbol, in gold for the Knight First Class and in silver for the Knight. The Grand Master determines the nature and form of the clasps. The FL decorations are conferred with swords only for meritorious military conduct in wartime.
