Most scholars believe that the military medals originated from the European aristocracy. In order to distinguish the knights on the ancient European battlefield, the nobles will design unique symbols and put the symbols on their flags, shirts, shields and other equipments to identify their identity. At that time, these symbols will be recorded and kept by hand. These aristocratic symbols were passed down from generation to generation. Some special symbols were made into real objects, which are the prototypes of the medals. Many of the medals awarded to the meritorious are made of real gold and silver, representing both spiritual and material encouragement.
