The Order of the Estonian Red Cross (Estonian: Eesti Punase Risti teenetemärk; French: Ordre de la Croix-Rouge Estonienne) was instituted in 1920 by the Estonian Red Cross Society. The Order of the Estonian Red Cross is bestowed in order to give recognition for humanitarian services rendered in the interests of the Estonian people and for the saving of life.[1]

Classes

  • Five basic classes – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th class;
