The Legal Status of the Knightly Order of Saint George

The Knightly Order of Saint George has been founded properly from the point of view of both the canon and the secular law, its foundations has never been annulled and its lawful existence has never ceased. The period of its inactivity ended in 1990, when - by the decision of learned historians and archaeologists - it started functioning again. Its constitution has been created keeping its old mentality but corresponding to the requirements of the end of the 20th century by the reorganisers. The ceremony of the creation of knights after a mass is performed with great solemnity in the Grand Hall of the Visegrád Royal Palace, where the Order was founded in 1326. It is God's special measure of grace that the members of the Order are able to live their communal life in the place of the foundation, in historical environment.


The reorganised Order was registered at the Pest County Court in the decision number 8.PK.5-61.007/1990 under the reference number Tsz.1007/1990. Its new computerised record number is TE 830/1990 and its serial number is 11007/90. The Order was declared organisation of public utility under the number 1. Pk.61007/1990/17 in 1996.


The recording of the Order at the Registry Court means legal defence concerning the use of the name. Besides this, the Knightly Order of Saint George is the right-holder of both the name and organisation. The Hungarian Patent Office has included in the patents No. 173 130 and 173 502 the following: the compound word 'the Knightly Order of Saint George', the coloured figured coat of arms of the Order, its seven-letter epigraph and its coloured figured insignia. The date of the beginning of its priority is 28 March 2001. All the absolute rights concerning the Knightly Order of Saint George can be exercised by the magistrate of the Order, working at H-2025 Visegrád, Fő u. 29. This is the place where the foundation was established. Thus the Order is an organic and inalienable part of the one-thousand-year historical heritage of Visegrád. (The historical town will celebrate its millennium in 2009.


The structure and spheres of activities of the Order are described in the CONSTITUTION OF THE ORDER and in the rules and regulation.
