Creus de Sant Jordi

Twenty nine people, three of whom received the distinction posthumously, and 23 entities that have been awarded with the St George’s Cross for providing outstanding services to Catalonia, in support of the country’s identity or, more generally, in the civil or cultural sphere.

The St George’s Cross is one of the highest distinctions that an individual can receive from the Government of Catalonia. The distinction was created in 1981 with the aim of distinguishing individuals or companies that, thanks to their merits, have provided outstanding services to Catalonia. Any citizen, group of citizens or company can request this award to be presented to any individual or entity.
