Grand Cross of the Military division of the Order of Leopold, similar to the one worn by His Majesty King Baudouin in his violet sash, on the day of his wedding. The insignia is formed by the Cross of Malta over oak leaves. In the centre it has the initials of the founder of the Order, King Leopold I of Belgium, who instituted it in 1832. Over the cross and the leaves, it has two swords (because it is the military division) and above those the royal crown.
Star of the Military division of the Order of Leopold, made in very small diamonds. Crossing the star are two swords, which symbolise the military character of the decoration. In the centre the Lion of Brabant, which is also part of the Belgian National and Royal Coats of Arms. Around the lion, the words “L’UNION FAIT LA FORCE”.
