On rare occasions, the arms of especially worthy recipients are given a special augmentation: a canton, chief or other major addition which includes the kingdom badge of Argent, a pale gules, overall a dragon passant vert.

This is perhaps the highest honor and distinction bestowed by the king and queen, as it visibly sets out the recipient as someone who has had a very noteworthy impact on the life of the kingdom. It may also indicate that the kingdom has run out of other awards and honors with which to recognize the honoree.
