The Order of St Andrew was Russia’s oldest and most exalted chivalric order, founded by Peter the Great in 1698 and awarded for the highest civilian or military achievements. Its annual celebration was held on 30 November, the traditional feast day of St Andrew.

On the head of the staff, carried by the herald of the Order, the cross of St. Andrew is depicted in the centre of the Russian state emblem, the double-headed eagle.
