The Colonial Award was founded by the Imperial German Colonial Veterans’ Union in 1922 and it was conferred upon veteran members of the German Military Colonial troops.

It is also known as "Lion Order".

The II Class was awarded to German settlers who provided civilian support to German colonial authorities.

This Badge was designed by Karl Richard Mobius, and it is also known as the Lion Order.

The obverse inscription translates to "For merits in colonies". The reverse inscription translates to "As a remembrance".

There were approximately 10,000 I Class and II Class awards conferred in total.
