On February 18, 1831, a series of long service decorations were introduced by Grand Duke Leopold of Baden. The decorations were established to recognise long-serving members of the Baden military, including Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and enlisted ranks.

Initially, a I Class Cross for 25 Years was introduced for Officers and a series of clasps for 25, 18, and 12 years of service were introduced for Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted ranks.

In 1846, a new decoration for Officers, which consisted of a I Class for 40 Years and a II Class Cross for 25 Year was introduced. In 1854, the design of the I Class Cross and II Class Cross was altered. The new design featured waved cross arms and a gold-coloured gryphon on the obverse.
