This award was instituted by the head of the German racial group for distinguished service. The Carpathian Germans were a group of Ethnic Germans who lived in present day Slovakia.

In German the medal is called: "Karpatendeutsche Ehrenzeichen" (Carpathian German Honor Decoration).
The letters in the center are KDP (=Karpaten Deutsche Partei). Carpathian German Party)
Intended for racial Germans (Volks-Deutschen) in Slovakia.
