Gilt-edged white enamel Greek cross on swivel civic crown suspension of the Franco era; the face with an imposed crowned circular central medallion in red, white and blue enamel and gilt metal bearing an escutcheon quarterly of Castile and Léon with Granada overall, a stylised wing to either side; the reverse with a circular gilt-edged deep red enamel medallion imposed bearing the gilt letters ‘MA’ (for Mérito Aeronáutico); 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 good older example is from the Franco era, prior to 1975.
