The Order was created by the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Pimen I, and the Holy Synod of 28 December 1988 to mark the 1000th anniversary of the Baptism of Russia.


The award may be conferred upon clergy, lay people and, in exceptional cases, organisations. It is awarded for services in the revival of spiritual life in Russia.


The Order has three grades.

1st class

The badge is a nickel-silver Byzantine cross (with truncated beams to the centre and slightly concave external parties). In the centre of the cross, there is a white enamel gilt embossed half-length image of St. Daniel in an oval with an image framed by two palm branches with dark blue enamel. On the broad ribbon connecting the laurel branches, specify the extent of the Order. On the branches of the cross are gilded letters Church Slavonic letters at the top: - "faithful" to the left - "KNZ" on the right - "DANIIL" at the bottom - "ISKCON" ("Pious Prince Daniel of Moscow") along the diagonals of the cross, adjacent to oval with a picture, are four crowns, each of which is decorated with rhinestones and ends with four-armed cross. At the top of the sign of the heraldic trefoil.

The statute of the Order was amended by the Patriarch and Holy Synod on 14 April 2006:

With this award the Order of the I level, the Heads of Churches and the Heads of State, awarded Merit, the Order of, a silk moire ribbon and orange suspension order on the tape.
