SERBIA & YUGOSLAVIA

King Milan I of Serbia instituted the Order of the White Eagle on 23 January 1883, concurrently with the Order of St. Sava. Serbia was proclaimed a Kingdom on 22 February (Old Style, in Gregorian calendar 5 March) 1882.

The white eagle with wings displayed was re-established as the State Arms of Serbia, symbol descended from the Emperors of Byzantium.

After his accession to the Throne in 1903, King Peter I continued awarding the Order of the White Eagle, but the reverse of the medallion had the year of the proclamation of the Kingdom (1882) instead of the cipher of Milan I.

The order had a War Merit Division, with crossed swords between the Royal Crown and eagle's heads, that was introduced in 1915, and conferred for conspicuous bravery of the officers in the field.

One of the most celebrated Yugoslav orders, it was instituted in 1883 in the Kingdom of Serbia and carried over to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, having been originally awarded for "merit in the areas of education, literature and fine arts"; after November 1914 it was broadened to cover also certain military achievements.
