A Vitézi Rend
A Vitézi Rendet Magyarország kormányzója alapította „a legbátrabbak tiszteletére és az áldozatok emlékére”. A Vitézi Rend hisz a vallás, a nemzet és a család mint alapelvek fontosságában. Mindenekelőtt fontosnak tartja Magyarország nemzeti szuverenitásának megőrzését, a nemzeti értékek tiszteletben tartását, valamint a keresztény életmód ösztönzését.
The Order of Vitéz
The Order of Vitéz was founded by the Regent of Hungary “to honor the bravest and remember their sacrifice”.

Let us learn from this work, and let us not be disheartened, because the strong Hungarian spirit is is still alive.”
The Order of Vitéz is a Military Order based on Christian confession and encouraging a life with the highest ethical values.
