Originally created as a military award for the Kingdom of Prussia during the Napoleonic Wars, the Iron Cross (Eisernes Kreuz) was re-instituted by Emperor Wilhelm II at the outset of World War I. Based upon the cross pattée, this award features a black enameled cross with flared tips, generally remaining with a consistent appearance throughout the various times at which it was awarded.
