The Order of the Black Griffin, most times called Black Griffin's Order and Black Griffin's Committee or officialy The Honorous Order of the Black Griffin (Latin: Ordo Gryphis Nigri) is a Lomellinian Chivalric order. It was founded in 19 August 2014 by the Prince of Lomellina, Duke of Scandia Colles and Count of Ross, D. Guilherme da Lomellina e Berenguer, followed by his nomination as Grand-master of the order.

First inspired by the Knights of the Round Table, the order only has 13 vacant places in wich the grand-master can nominate and withdraw members. Only those who gain civil, military or foreign relation merit can join the order, currently there's 9 members. The order works as a "global alliance" between the members and their respective nations and those who join, gain the other nation's friendship.

The treaty was a post-result of the dissolved Intercontinental Micronational Alliance, a mistaken organization created with the same objective of a diplomatic treaty. The treaty was signed with the aim of helping diplomatic relations between the micronations, with a general focus on its own member states, being cultural, security, scientific or foreign improvement.
