Red Cross Medals of the World

The International Federation of
Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

is the world's largest humanitarian organization,
with 178 member National Societies.

This is a work in progress, I do not have medals from all 178 member societies, some may have never issued a medal, there are some medals I have yet to identify, there are some societies which, for one reason or another, no longer exist.
For example before German unification, (the first one) there were a number of principalities, each with their own independent society, (Bavaria Prussia, Saxony and the others) and of course there is the recent East/West German unification. Germany is not unique in this respect, Yugoslavia today is made up of the republics of Serbia and Montenegro, which both had independent societies in the days of the monarchy.
Hopefully in time I will have most of them represented, it is also possible that some have never issued any medals, and so won't have a place in these pages. For some societies, our only examples may be pins. I will try to verify all the information here, and I will correct any errors once they are brought to my attention.
Please note, we are not, at this time, attempting to document every Red Cross medal of every society.
This is to be a helpful introduction both to the medals, and to the international nature of the Red Cross.

It is also wise to mention that the distinction between awards of a society and those authorized by a goverment are often quite fuzzy, and may not always be helpful.
