History


This Decoration was based on the Long Service Decorations awarded throughout the Austro-Hungarian Empire, with the addition of Hungarian symbols and design elements.

The crosses were awarded to Hungarian Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and non-combatants to recognize long and loyal service.

Each group of recipients was awarded the cross on a unique ribbon.

Officers have a red ribbon with thick white and green stripes along each side.

Non-Commissioned Officers have a white ribbon with a red, white, and green stripe in the centre of the ribbon, a green stripe along the left side, and a red stripe along the right side.

Non-combatants have a ribbon with a green centre with one thin red stripe in the middle and thick white and red stripes on along either side.

The II Class cross was conferred for 30 years of service from 1923-1942, and for 25 years of service from 1942-1945.
