Embroidered and printed ribbons

Embroidered ceremonial ribbons are an inseparable part of all embroidered ceremonial banners and flags.  Ribbons are most often drawn up with texts commemorating the granting or blessing of a symbol, or any other important event tied to the symbol.

These embroidered ribbons are attached to the banners during ceremonial acts and the attaching itself becomes a significant personal honor. Embroidered ribbons are made from the same material as the banner or flag, for which they are intended. In addition to the commemorative text, the ribbon is also usually embroidered with other symbols, for example the coat of arms of the village, town, or fire brigade. The size of an embroidered ribbon is usually 130 x 15 cm, which corresponds to a standard size banner or flag.

Ribbons are available in various designs:

  • a crossbar ribbon
  • a knotted ribbon: single-stream, double-stream, or triple-stream
  • a straight ribbon: single-stream, double-stream, or triple-stream

All of these ribbons can be seen in our photo gallery.

 Ribbon should be made from the same material as the flag or banner:

  • Satin (glossy, reflects light, very distinctive)
  • Velvet (soft, medium density, semi glossy)
  • Velvet premium (higher density, matte, absorbs light, dignified look)
  • Velvet exclusive (the highest density – rich height and thickness, heavy)
