This is a Vivat Ribbon commemorating Kaiser Wilhelm II and Generalfeldmarschall von Hindenburg. The Vivat also commemorates the Battle of Tannenberg, where von Hindenburg was the commander. This battle was the most significant on the Eastern Front, and a big German victory. The ribbon is lilac in color and measures 15 ½” x 2 ½.” Vivat Ribbons generally were issued under the auspices of the German Red Cross. The ribbon is in excellent condition.
