Garter, Order of the, highest order in England, founded in 1348 by King Edward III. It is composed of the reigning sovereign, the Prince of Wales, and 24 knights, in addition to a number of English princes, foreign sovereigns, and other specially chosen members. The order was established in honor of the Virgin Mary, Saint Edward the Confessor, and Saint George, the patron saint of England. Originally it was designated as the Order of Saint George, a name it bore until the reign of English and Irish king Edward VI. During the knights’ lifetimes, their heraldic banners are hung in Saint George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, which also serves as the chapel of the order. The motto of the order is Honi soit qui mal y pense (Shame on him who thinks evil of it) and the badge of the garter is displayed on the coats of arms of the members.
