The Order of the White Star was established by Prime Minister Konstantin Päts in 1936 in commemoration of the struggle for Estonian independence. It was later suppressed during the Soviet occupation, but it was renewed in 1996 following the restoration of Estonian independence.

It is conferred upon Estonian citizens - generally civil servants - in recognition of service rendered to local governments or the state administration, although it is also conferred upon Estonian citizens in recognition of contributions made to education, science, the economy, sports, culture, and community services in Estonia. It is also conferred upon foreigners for meritorious service rendered to Estonia. It may be awarded posthumously.

The I Class Cross is identical to the Collar Sash Badge. The sash is 105mm wide for men and 64mm wide for women.
