*The Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, one of the most significant British Orders was established on 28 April 1818 by the Prince Regent George III (later-on King George IV), following a request for political reasons by Sir Thomas Maitland, Governor of Malta and first Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands (1815-1824). Until 1864 the Order’s Seat was in Corfu, at the Palace named after it, while from 1906 until today Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London is its final Seat. Saint Michael the Archangel, General Commander of the Angelic orders, and St George, Patron of England, were chosen as the Order’s patrons, because the worship of both martial saints is particularly widespread in all Christian denominations, Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox. The moto of the Order, evident in all its symbolic and decorative elements, is the Latin phrase “Auspicium Melioris Aevi”, i.e. “Auspice for a better era”
