Maltese citizens named to the Order are called members, and foreigners named to the Order are called honorary members.

There may not be more than three Companions of Honour any given time. The annual contingent is limited to 2 Companions, 3 Officers, and 10 Members.

The motto of the Order is "VIRTUTE ET CONSTANTIA," which translates to "Virtue and Consistency."
