The name of the decoration is "Cruz de Guerra con palmas para cabos y soldados" (War Cross with palms for corporals and privates). There was a similar cross without palms that was a lesser award. It was introduced in 1942 and therefore it was not awarded for Spanish Civil War service (1936-1939).

Thx for the answer. Very apreciated.

There is no decoration with that name. I understand that you are referring to the "Gran Cruz de Guerra" (Great War Cross) that was awarded to generals.
