The Most Illustrious Order of the Crown of Selangor (Bahasa Melayu: Darjah Kebesaran Mahkota Selangor Yang Amat Mulia is an order awarded by Sultan of Selangor as a reward for general services to the sultan and state of Selangor.[2][3][4] It was founded in 1961. The order is awarded to the relatives of the Sultan of Selangor as well as high-ranking individuals who have contributed excellence to the Sultan of Selangor and the Sultan's Government. The Sultan also has the right to bestow this Degree of Excellence to anyone whom he deems fit and appropriate to receive it.[2]

Appearance[edit]

Knight Grand Commander[edit]

It is awarded in a set of breast star, a collar, a badge and a red coloured sash with a yellow stripe, worn from right shoulder to the left waist.

The collar is made of silver-plated metal and enamel. It is worn on the same length at the front and back. For male recipients, the collar is 100.6 cm long while it is 78.74 cm for female recipients. The differences is because the female's collar is designed to be worn at the neck so it is made without the two chain link in the middle of the male's collar. This necklace has 14 connecting chain link for male, and 12 for female. The two middle chains contain two frames of the Selangor flag that are combined with crescent moon and star. To his left and right are two rubber leaves compositions. All these compositions are made of enamel.

The rest of the chain links are round in shape and adorned with coconut leaves around them. These compositions are arranged into four pairs, each of which contains three different types of chromatic compositions, the first containing the word Selangor in jawi, the second contains two crossed fragments of coconut leaves, and the third contains crescent and stars. Each of these compositions is made of shadowed thin, red enamel metal.

The breast star is made of silver-plated metal, its surface length is 6.985 cm long and has five arise fractions, complete with circles at the end of each of these fractions, and made of red enamel metal. In the center of this star is a circle of 3.175 cm long bearing the symbol of Selangor state with yellow enamel as the base.

The badge is made of silver-plated metal. It is five pointed and decorated just like the breast star. It is also decorated with the engraving of the Selangor State Emblem on red enamel. This badge is made to be suspended on the collar or sash.

The sash is made of red silk cloth 10.16 cm in width for male, 5.715 cm for female, with a 2.54 cm wide yellow band in the center.[2][4]

Knight Commander[edit]

It is awarded in a set of breast star, a badge and a red coloured sash with a yellow stripe, worn from right shoulder to the left waist.

The shape and size of the badge is the same as the Knight Grand Commander's except the symbols are shown on a flat background, replacing the engraved emblem in the red enamel background in the former. The breast star is also of the same size and shape as Knight Grand Commander's but without the five-pointed silver star.

The male sash is made of 10 cm wide red silk cloth with a 2 cm wide yellow band in the middle. To the left and right of the band are two 0.35 cm wide red strips and two 0.35 cm wide yellow strips. The female sash is 5.7 cm in width with a 1.14 cm wide yellow band in its center. Similar to the male sash, it has two red strips and two yellow strips, both are 0.19 cm wide to the right of the yellow band in the middle of the sash.

The sash was included in the award from 25 February 1999.[3][4]
