Why did We make this website?
Due to the fact that we all are interested in Phaleristics and we all are engaged in some way in the Voluntary Defense movment, it has come natural that a great many questions about medals and ribbons and their wear goes to us. Most of the time we refer to The Armed Forces Regulation for decorations from 1996 and the Uniform Regulations from 2003. But none of them are complete or up to date so we saw the need for an application with a database that sorted the ribbons and medals in the correct order of wear. The initiative to the website is entirely our own, but Optima Trading stands for part of the financing. There are no business motives behind it since we just see the initiative as an educating effort which hopefully leads to a more correct wear of decorations on all types of uniforms. How many hours we have put in to the project is wery hard to measure, but it surely runs up to thousands.
How shall I wear my medals on my uniform?
We refer to the Armed Forces Uniform Regulations (UniR FM) or the regulations of the organisation in question. Simplified guidelines will be available at this website soon.
