Order of the Golden Stole

The Order of the Golden Stole is reserved for the highest ranking members of the Venetian patriciate and conferred upon those who perform a valuable service on behalf of the Republic, such as ambassadors extraordinary.

The golden stole is a gold-colored scarf draped over the shoulders and reaching to the knee; iot is embroidered with flowers. It is worn on ceremonial occasions and state functions. A habit or surcoat of taffeta or velvet, topped by a black cap, is worn at other times by members of the order.
