This is what I deduce so far:
Light blue - Danish
Light blue - Swedish?
Purple - Belgium
Maroon - Jordan (and Belgium?)
Gold - Luxembourg
Gold blue gold - the Netherlands
? - Norway
Red white red - Monaco
Yellow? - Spain
Blue red blue - House of Hannover?
Green ? - Italian
? - Japan

I think there might be different sashes for different occasions?

Being that there seems to be so many from SPAIN, can someone help with an explaination of what they all stand for or mean? It would be awesome to know more... Pics would be cool too. I dont know anything and sashes totally get my attention, so anything from anyone would help. Please... Thank You for starting this wonderful topic.

Honestly Josephine, they are probably from other countries no doubt, I am just confused because at different funtions for the SRF Felipe and Juan Carlos seem to wear different colored sashes. I do know that there are a few in Spain. There is most defanitly the sash for Spain (which other royals sometimes wear), there is the Golden Fleece, there is a sash for Isabella la Catlica, there is the Order of Maria-Louisa (highest order in the SRF for wemon) which is in three or four different colors. There is the order of Carlos III.

To the Order of the Golden Fleece



To the Royal Military Order of San Hermenegildo

To the Illustrious Royal Order of Charles III


To the Royal Order of Maria Luisa


To the Royal (American) Order of Isabella the Catholic

There are others but, I dont have photos or info on them, so not most of them are from other countries except for the sashes. There are a few orders from the RF itself. Can anyone else help?

updated?? ....sashes worn by the spanish RF

1) yellow with red edges, same colours as their flag - national ?
2) blue with edges being white edge, blue, and white - Order of Charles III ?
3) light purple with white edges. - Royal Order of Maria Luisa ?
4) neon blue
5) yellow - national ?
6) green
7) red edged with blue edge and white. - Order of Golden Fleece ?
8) ? - Order of Isabella the Catholic

I have no clue ... maybe the solution comes after a bit more confusion

We have gotten some help from people at the Glittering Royal Events Message Board

Most sashes are worn from right to left. A very few are worn the other way around (left to right), these include the British Order of the Garter and the Danish Order of the Elephant.
Which way to wear a sash is specified in said decoration's statutes (which I guess most people get together with the actual decoration).
There are, however, famous examples of royals wearing their sashes the wrong way (including Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg at the 2001 Norwegian royal wedding).

Sashes worn with uniform are always worn over the shoulder. When worn with white-tie I think one can choose whether to wear it over the shoulder or under the arm-pit. It is also a matter of tradition in different countries.

In most countries one does not wear the collar and sash of the same order together (this includes the UK, the Nordic countries and Be-Ne-Lux). There are some exceptions (the Spanish Order of King Carlos III is among those I think), but this is also specified in the statutes of the order.

Decorations are normally not worn with less formal clothing (black-tie, suite-and tie etc), but there are exceptions here too.

Every country has its own sashes and some countries wear them over the left shoulder while other swear them over the right shoulder.
Also in some countries it is the use that gentlemen wear sashes under their armpits while wearing cravate blanc. While wearing uniform the sash is always over the shoulder.

While wearing cravate noire, a jacquet and a normal tie, a sash is usually not worn.

Thank you Josefine.

Personally, I think the British sash colour looks more favourable than the pallid blue of Denmark and Scandinavia. That Spanish sash which is white purple white is hardly what I can appealing.

Another sash .....
from Sweden.

My compliments to Josefine,

According to the picture (below) that she showed on Glittering Royal Events Message Board, the answers came back as:

Quote:
Torgel
King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia and Prince Bertil are all wearing the highest Swedish decoration, the Royal Order of the Seraphim (light blue).

Princess Lilian is wearing the second highest Swedish Order, the Royal Order of the North Star, which she received when she married. It has a dark blue sash with yellow edges.
Quote:
Sean
She is wearing the order of the Royal Order of the Northern Star, Sweden's 2nd order. "The Order may be awarded to Swedes and to foreigners for civilian services, official and Civil Service activities".

.... Torgel goes on to say
Quote:
The Princess received the higher Order of the Seraphim in connection with her 80th birthday in 1995, and thus wears this order in recent pictures.
Wow. I just find this simply astounding.
I suppose this means EVERY country has various orders .... you ladies willing to dig around some more?

Best regards,
Haakon2

ps and here's the picture compliments of Josefine ...

this is Finlands Sash, worn by Victoria
and the (Finnish??) gentleman standing beside her looks to be wearing the "second highest Swedish Order, the Royal Order of the North Star".

I think the royals, when they visit another country wear each other's sashes as a sign of honour.

Thanks ladies for your enthusiasm !!!!!!!!!!!!!

www.ibl.se - From the Queen Mum's funeral services, I guess Kings Harald (a cousin of QEII) of Norway and Juan Carlos of Spain have been given the British sash, but not King Carl Gustav.

Certainly the royal blue of the British sash stands out with the traditional dark uniforms.

This is a most impressive picture from the Queen Mum's funeral services.

www.corbis.com - Spanish state visit to Belgium. What sash has King Albert got on here? It doesn't look like the previous Spanish sashes shown here, although King Juan Carlos is wearing the Belgian sash. And is Princess Astrid's husband Lorentz wearing an Austrian sash?
