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.
