The Order of the Cross of Takovo was instituted in the Principality of Serbia in 1865 to mark the 50th anniversary of the Second Serbian Uprising against the Ottoman Empire, which had started in Takovo, Serbia.

The decree that established the Cross and Silver Medal was signed on 22 May 1865 by Mihailo Obrenović III, Prince of Serbia. The Order was suppressed in 1903.
