EPIDEMICS CROSS OF DISTINCTION

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
It is a cross created by royal order of May 17, 1829 for the merit contracted in Manila (Philippines) in the epidemic that began with cholera-morbidity in 1820.
This first has the motto FERNANDO 7 ° AL MÉRITO EN LA EPIDEMIA DE MANILA DE 1820 (MERIT IN THE MANILA EPIDEMIC OF 1820).
It is a cross with four curvilinear arms enameled in white that converged in a center, on which the bust of the king or queen (Ferdinand VII and Elizabeth II) in gold, and around it a laurel border. In the arms were red-enameled isosceles triangles, the ends of which ended in gold globes, and on the upper arm a laurel wreath, from which a ring to be worn of a red and yellow ribbon in half.
The reverse was the same and in its blue center the indicated motto was read in black letters.
By royal order of July 9, 1830, another cross was awarded with the motto FERNANDO 7 ° FOR THE MERIT OF THE CANARY ISLANDS EPIDEMIC IN 1811.
By royal order of July 15, 1830, another was granted with the inscription FERNANDO 7. TO THE MERIT CONTRACTED IN THE GIBRALTAR EPIDEMIC IN 1828.
By royal order of July 27, 1836, the same cross of distinction was awarded with the motto: ISABEL II, FOR THE MERIT CONTRACTED IN THE EPIDEMICS OF CÁDIZ IN 1819 AND 1826.
The concessions were repeated so that by royal order of June 30, 1838, the concession was regularized, fixing the cases in which the professors of the science of healing became creditors to the Cross of epidemics, expressing the way how they should test their services.
In 1910 this cross was recast with the Civil Order of Charity.

The one on this week's website is a "recreation" of these crosses, as a tribute to all of you who are fighting against this covid-19 pandemic. Time will tell how these professionals are rewarded ...
