Classes

The Order of the White Star comprises five classes:[1]

  • First Class – It has two different types, the male version and the female version.[1] The male version of the Order of the White Star has wider ribbons than the female class.[1]
  • Second Class – It has two different types, the male version and the female version.[1] The male version of the Order of the White Star has wider ribbons that are not multiple pointed on the ends like that of the female version.[1]
  • Third Class – It has two different types, the male version and the female version.[1] The male version of the Order of the White Star has a full neck ribbon, while a "bow and tails" ribbon is worn in the female version.[1] The Third Class doesn't come with the Star of the Order, just the ribbon and the attached Order Badge.[1]
  • Fourth Class – It has just one type but the single ribbon has a rosette on it.[1]
  • Fifth Class – It has just one type but the single ribbon does not have a rosette on it.[1]

The Order has a single Medal Class.[1] The medal class has the same design as the Fifth Class, but the badge itself is backed in a circular section of silver.[1] The Order has a collar design called the Collar of the Order.[1] It has a golden necklet that has smaller Stars in its design all around it.[1]
