History


The Cross was established by the Senate of Hamburg, as well as the Hanseatic cities of Bremen and Lübeck.

The Cross was conferred upon citizens of Bremen, Hamburg, and Lübeck in recognition of meritorious service throughout the First World War (1914-1918).

The Cross was the three cities’ equivalent to the Prussian Iron Cross when it was conferred for bravery and combat merit.

The shape of the cross is consistent between Bremen, Hamburg, and Lübeck, but each city's cross features a different obverse image.

The Hanseatic Cross of Hamburg was awarded 50,000 times.
