The Legion of Peace is an Order of Westarctica intended to recognize the promotion of peace. It was originally an Order of Calsahara created by King Montague in 2009. It was among the first orders created by the King as an expression of Calsahara's peace-loving culture.

Composition and regalia

The head of the Legion is known as the General of the Legion of Peace and wears an elaborate khaki uniform with gold epaulettes and a peaked cap. From the formation of the order, the General of the Legion has been Grand Duke Travis, although when he assumed the role, he was the King of Calsahara.

Members of the legion are known as Legionnaires and are entitled to wear the regalia of the order, which is a peace symbol mounted upon a white drape ribbon.

The first two members of the Legion of Peace were the Duke of Waesche and the Grand Duke of Flandrensis who were invested as Legionnaires due to their peaceful settlement of the Siple War. The only other member of the order is King Christopher of Vikesland, who was given the medal of the Legion just prior to MicroCon 2015 in recognition of his peaceful handling of various internal conflicts in his nation.

The order is limited to 40 Legionnaires.
