Well, I will accept your answer, but the explanation is needed.

Original polish Order of the White Eagle was abolished after 3rd partition of Poland (in 1795)t, though it had been renewed by 1807 and was the highest decoration of the Duchy of Warsaw and of the Kingdom of Poland (Congress Poland).

After fall of the November Uprising (in 1831) russian emperor abolished the Order as the polish decoration and instituted new Order of the White Eagle as 'Imperatorsky & Tzarsky' - 3rd in russian decorations system (after Order of St. Andrew and equal to Order of Saint Catherine & Order of St. Alexander Nevsky).

The Order insignia in my riddle are taken from 'Imperatorsky & Tzarsky' Order of the White Eagle.

Tyskaorden2 - Your turn.

Cheers 8-)
