Order of New Zealand
Some Commonwealth countries have their own Orders, which are awarded to their citizens and indicated in the same way as the British system.
The Order of New Zealand (ONZ) was established in 1987. The Order, of which the Queen is Sovereign, is modelled on the OM (it has precedence after the OM), conferrs no title and ordinary membership is limited to 20.
Next in precedence is the New Zealand Order of Merit, which was instituted by Royal Warrant dated 30 May 1996. On 8 March 2009 it was announced that the Queen had given approval for the reinstatement of the titles of Knight and Dame Grand Companion (GNZM) and Knight and Dame Companion (KNZM and DNZM).
The Queen's Service Order (QSO) and the Queen's Service Medal (QSM) were instituted by Royal Warrant in 1975.
|QSO||Companion of The Queen's Service Order, with precedence after OBE|
|QSM||The Queen's Service Medal, with precedence after QGM and before BEM|
