The NSDAP Long Service Award (Die Dienstauszeichnung der NSDAP), was a political award in the form of a badge of the National Socialist Party. The National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), commonly known in English as the NSDAP Party, was a political party in Germany between 1919 and 1945. It was known as the German Workers’ Party (DAP) before the name was changed in 1920.

The award was given in three grades of ten years, fifteen years, and twenty-five years of service. On its reverse side, each award had emblazoned the inscription, in German: Treue für Führer und Volk (“Loyalty to Leader and People”). The service award was a four-pointed cross (Ordenskreuz) cross with slightly curved arms. In the center of the cross is the national eagle with an oakleaves wreath. Between the arms were rays, which was suspended from a 30mm ribbon. On 2 April 1939, A H ordered its institution for male and female members of the NSDAP who met certain qualifications. The award was first given out on 30 January 1940.
