About this itemThis Order was created on 16 December 1940 from the previous Cross of Liberty which had been founded on 4 March 1918 at the time of Finland’s war for independence. It is Finland’s premier order.
This example would have been awarded for Gallantry during the Continuation War with the Soviet Union, 1941 to 1944.
The cross silver Gammée (Swastika) was present in many cultures as a symbol of good luck' its use on this Finnish Order pre-dates its use by the German National Socialists and has no connection with this Finnish Order as this symbol was first used in 1918 by Finland.
Blackened oxidised iron cross pattée with magnetic core, with eyelet for ribbon suspension; the face with a silvered white rose of Finland imposed centrally on a silver cross gammée; the reverse dated ‘1941’; on original ribbon with silver oval wreath suspension, a gauntleted arm holding a sword to the left, a mailed arm holding a scimitar to the right (both from the national arms of Finland) denoting an award for active military service.
