    The image of the Badge is a scanned image from "De Kongelige Danske Ridderordener" by Grandjean, H.F.. The book was published in 1903, and falls within the public domain in Canada, the United States, its country of origin, and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 70 years or less.

Also known as the "Royal Family Order" or the "Order Tessera Concordiae", this Order was established by King Christian VII, possibly, in replacement of the Order of Mathilde, which was abolished upon Queen Caroline Mathilde's exile. The Order was conferred exclusively upon members of the Royal Family.

Both women and men were eligible to receive this Order. Women would wear it on their left breast with a bow, and men on a left button hole of their coats.

In present day there is no existing insignia, therefore, all images of the Badge are merely drawings based on images in paintings of recipients, and there are many descriptions known of the badge.

The Order became obsolete in 1796, after the death of Queen Juliane Marie.
