Estonian Liberty Cross

Estonian Liberty Cross

I got this pin in Tallinn, Estonia May 17, 2015 (along with several others.) This pin is related to the Estonian Cross of Liberty.

The Cross of Liberty was a medal established by then Prime Minister of Estonia, Konstantin Päts, on 24 February 1919 to honor people for their services during the Estonian War of Independence and conferred in three grades, each in three classes.

The War of Independence Victory Column in Tallinn, opened in 2009, is modelled after the Cross of Liberty.

Location: 15-E1
