Knight Commander of Constantine

The image is a
mock-up I put together
Within the Masonic and Military Order of the Red Cross of Constantine and the Orders of the Holy Sepulcher and St. John the Evangelist are two honors conferred by the United Grand Imperial Council: Knight Grand Cross and Knight Commander of Constantine. The former will be discussed later while the focus will be on the latter.

The Knight Commander of Constantine is an honor conferred by the Most Illustrious Grand Sovereign with the concurrence of Grand Viceroy upon those Knight Companions who have exhibited faithful service to the United Grand Imperial Council. To be eligible for this award one must serve a total of ten (10) years or more as either Intendent General, Grand Treasurer, Grand Recorder, Trustee, or Chairman of a Standing Committee or any combination thereof. Only three (3) can be conferred in a given year provided the maximum number of recipients doesn't exceed fifty (50). Recipients of this award hold the title of "Illustrious".

The jewel of the Knight Commander of Constantine is a Sovereign’s jewel superimposed upon an embellished floriated (decorated with floral designs) half wreath of gold laurel leaves encompassing the lower half of the jewel and is hung from a collar ribbon of crimson silk. If the recipient is a Past Intendent General then the ribbon shall be half crimson and half gold.
