Miniature silver-gilt-edged white enamel cross pattée with silver-gilt lions of Finland between the arms, with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a blue circular central medallion within a gilt ring bearing a white and gold stylised rose; the reverse plain white enamel; diameter 15.21mm (0.6 inch); on correct ribbon without rosette.

The Order was established on 28 January 1919 to replace the Order of the Cross of Liberty and may be awarded to both military and civilian Finns and foreigners for outstanding acts benefiting Finland. It was designed by the great Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865-1931).

A good example.
