The International Knightly Order of St George promotes and pursues the timeless traditions of chivalry by compassion and supporting works of charity. The Order focuses on supporting charities that work with current and former service personnel, and with Christian communities suffering religious persecution.

Saint George is the patron saint both of soldiers and of many countries and communities around the world, particularly in the Middle East. True to this heritage, we focus our work on supporting vulnerable communities in the Middle East and Africa, and in the welfare of NATO and Commonwealth armed forces personnel and veterans.

The Order of St George is a worldwide confraternity of men and women who seek to support, in a modest way, the timeless social virtues of compassion, charity, faithfulness and courage – in a word, chivalry. We take our inspiration from the original Order of St. George established in 1326 in Hungary, which was the very first royal and military order of chivalry.

The modern Order is a registered charity and a UN accredited NGO. It members are drawn from all walks of life, and from across the globe.

Today’s Officers, Knights, and Dames of St George uphold the virtues of chivalry and undertake to support our charitable and humanitarian mission around the world.


The Order of St. George welcomes members from around the world. We work through two Grand Priories – the Americas Grand Priory leads our activities in North America, the Caribbean, and Latin America, while the UK Grand Priory takes care of the United Kingdom, Europe, and the rest of the world..
