The German Cross (German: Deutsches Kreuz) was instituted by Adolf Hitler on 17 November 1941 as an award ranking higher than the Iron Cross First Class but below the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross respectively ranking higher than the War Merit Cross First Class with Swords but below the Knight's Cross of the War Merit Cross with Swords.

The German Cross was issued in two divisions: gold and silver (the color of the laurel wreath around the swastika), the former being an award for repeated acts of bravery or repeated outstanding achievements in combat, the latter being for multiple distinguished services in war efforts and was considered a continuation of the War Merit Cross with swords. The receipient of the German Cross in Gold had to already be a holder of the Iron Cross First Class or of the 1939 Wiederholungsspange (Clasp) to the 1914 Iron Cross First Class. The construction of this award is the most complex of all military decorations of Nazi Germany.
