The Order of Saint John in Sweden is a Protestant chivalric order. It is a member of the Alliance of the Orders of Saint John of Jerusalem.

It was founded in 1920 in Stockholm, Sweden, as an affiliate of the German Bailiwick of Brandenburg.[1] In November 1946, it was granted a Royal Charter by King Gustav V as the Johanniterorden I Sverige. King Carl XVI Gustav is the current High Patron, and Queen Silvia is the First Honorary Member of the Order.[2]
