    *************

    http://www.falkasetur.is/falkinn/fal...ska-falkaorda/

    Google Translate
    King Kristján X of Danmark and Queen Alexandrine visited Iceland in the summer of 1921.

    On that trip, especially on July 3, the King founded Hina the Icelandic Falcon Order with the signing of a royal letter.

    As the name of the Order suggests, a picture of a Falcon is the symbol of the Order.

    The royal letter states, among other things:

    "We have the right to give them men and women, domestic and foreigners who have crossed others in enhancing honor and favor the foster of the earth
    to some degree, official recognition, to establish an Icelandic Order, which we wish to be called the Icelandic Falcon."
    (EN.: Icelanders and foreigners get honored for achievements in Iceland or internationally.)

    The King of Iceland was the first Grandmaster of the Falcon Order. The president of Iceland is honoring Icelandic citizens twice a year, January 1 and June 17. The President also annually honors a few foreign nationals.

    The Order has five degrees:

    The first degree of the Order is the crossing of the cross and most of the Orders are honored with this degree.
    The second stage is a big cross, then a big cross with a star and finally a big cross.
    The first level of the Order is a chain along with a great cross star, but it's only carried by heads of a state.

    According to the Order of the Falcon Wikipedia article, Magnús has not received one. Sort of surprising if fourteen people received it this year alone, given the small population of Iceland.
