Warsaw Cross Of Insurgency.

(Warszawski Krzyz Powstanczy)

This Cross was instituted by act of Parliament of July 7th, 1981. It was awarded to all military and civilian participants of the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Conferred also on Poles and foreigners who gave the uprising their support.
It is a silver Greek cross with the date 1 VIII on the left and 1944 on the right arm the date of the outbreak of the uprising. The center has the insurgents white and red arm band with an anchor and combined letters PW (Polska walczaca - fighting Poland), the symbol of Polish Resistance. On the granular reverse there is a laurel wreath in the center and the inscription POWSTANCOM WARSZAWY (to the insurgents of Warsaw) through the horizontal arms. The 40mm Medal ribbon has a half white half red central stripe and very wide edge stripes in the colors of Virtuti Militari.
