The Iron Cross is closely associated to Germany since here it represents the highest military commendation. It was founded by emperor Friedrich Wilhelm III. of Prussia in 1813 during the war against Napoleon and consists of silver rimmed iron. It was awarded in all later wars up to World war II. As opposed to the swastika the iron cross was never removed from the German iconography.
