This Order was instituted in 1954 to recognize individuals who have rendered extraordinary or important services to the Sultan. The post-nominal letters for this Order are SPMB, DPMB and SMB. The first two classes carry the right to the titles ‘Dato Seri Paduka’ and ‘Dato Paduka’ respectively. The collar chain has, at the front and rear, a representation of most of the state crest flanked by two of the Crowns in a black enamelled octagon. The other links are slightly different representations of part of the State Crest with white crescent moons, crossed kris, and crossed flags.
