Factsheet ‘Decorations’

Decorations are awards and honours given for outstanding services and achievements. Granting decorations is a long-standing phenomenon in Western culture. The Romans had an honours system, as too did religious orders, royal houses and republics later on. Some decorations are therefore part of an ancient tradition. The same also applies to a number of military decorations.
