Silvered-edged white enamel Greek cross on swivel royal crown suspension; the face with an imposed crowned circular central medallion in red, white and blue enamel and silvered metal bearing an escutcheon quarterly of Castile and Léon with Granada overall, a stylised wing to either side; the reverse plain; on original ribbon with pasador top bar mounted for wear. The Cross was instituted in 1949 to reward contributions to Spanish aviation and may be awarded to both military and civilians, and to Spanish and foreign citizens. This example with royal rather than civic crown is from the post-Franco era, after to 1975 but before the current arms of Spain were adopted in 1981.
