Bronze cross pattée with concave ends to the arms, with ball-tipped finials and five graduated rays between the arms, with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing the letters ‘PR’ (Rzeczpospolita Polska = Republic of Poland) within a circular stylised laurel wreath; the reverse plain; on original slightly grubby ribbon. The Cross was instituted on 23 June 1923 to be awarded for exemplary public service or humanitarian work above and beyond the call of duty. This example dates from the period before 1945. Interestingly, the ribbon is mounted in the Romanian style.
