Large deep green enamel cross pattée with rays between the arms; the face with a circular central white enamel medallion bearing a silvered crossed sword and fasces, symbol of the Guardia Civil, inscribed ‘AL MERITO’ above, within a green enamel laurel wreath; the reverse with a silvered-edged circular central white enamel medallion bearing the intertwined letters ‘GC’ surmounted by the Royal Crown; with pins for wear; a small hairline crack to the lower left of the white enamel of the face; diameter 64.1mm (2.52 inches). The Order was instituted on 12 February 1976 to be awarded for service bringing prestige to the Guard and of merit to the State.
