The award is in the form of a shield, featuring a Luftwaffe eagle with swastika facing to the viewer's right superimposed over a outlining of southeast Europe. Above the eagle the inscription reads: for special merits in area southeast. Underneath the eagle the inscription continues: the commanding general and chief in Luftwaffe Command Southeast, followed by a facsimile of Fiebig, followed by his rank, General der Flieger.
