No, it´s not an order (you might have noticed average, commoner norwegians wearing it for the national day, too). It´s some sort of a "festive bow" in the national colours of Norway (red, white and blue are the colours of freedom) many norwegians wear every 17th of may each year.
It will be worn on the left side because the heart is located in the left side of the human body.
In the old days it was often decorated with added rosettes and an image of the King (don´t know if this is done sometimes still today).
