History


The Medal was instituted by Prince Leopold IV and was awarded to men and women for wartime service, both on the home front and in enemy territory. Service included voluntarily participation in the military, caring for sick and wounded soldiers, working with the German Red Cross and other acts of meritorious service.

The Medal was awarded to Combatants and Non-Combatants.

The ribbon for Combatants was yellow with white and red stripes along the exterior edges.

The ribbon for Non-Combatants was white with yellow and red stripes along the exterior edges.

When the Cross was awarded to women, it was worn on a bow ribbon.
