History


The Merit Medal was established by the Senate of Bremen on December 2, 1902. It was awarded at the discretion of the Senate. Until 1907, the medal was awarded to recognize achievement in commerce, trade, agriculture, and animal husbandry. After 1907, the medal became an all purpose award for the city of Bremen. The medals are seen with and without the stamped "H.HAHN/FEC". The medal was awarded until 1976.
