Palm of Jerusalem

Article 42 of the 2020 Constitution addresses the matters of the emblems of the Order.  The General Regulations have not yet been promulgated.PalmJerusalem

Article 14 if the revised Constitution of 1996 provides as follows:

Special Distinctions The following are special distinctions of the Order: 1 - The Palm of Jerusalem (of gold, silver and bronze), can be conferred by the Cardinal Grand Master to persons of flawless moral conduct, especially meritorious on behalf of the Order or the Holy Land. The Palm of Jerusalem can be conferred for the same reasons and conditions, in special cases, by the Patriarch Grand Prior of the Order to persons with established residence in the Holy Land, and in exceptional cases, to persons in transit there. The Patriarch informs the Grand Magisterium regularly of this, sending the related documentation.

Palm leaves are worn in memory of Jesus’ triumphant entry in Jerusalem. Our medieval forerunners would have been referred to as palmers.
