Coast Guard Medal ribbon.svg

This category contains simplified Military awards and decorations:
orders and ribbon bars, consisting of very simple elements easy to draw manually.

00It is a good idea to let the file description display the color values.

All the simple ribbon bars can be drawn by expanding this stub with the paths for the color stripes, as CASMR Recruiting Ribbon.svg

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg xmlns="" width="218" height="60">
<rect fill="#FFF" stroke="#000" stroke-width="2" stroke-opacity=".2" width="218" height="60"/>

---- color stripes ----

<path stroke="#000" stroke-width="217" stroke-dasharray="2.07" opacity=".4" d="m109,0v60"/>

For an example, see Texas Homeland Defense Service Ribbon.svg and the explanations at its talk page.

Wikipedian Editor Ribbon 0.svg

To generate other edges like that preferred by Barrister, the last path need to be written like

<path stroke="#000" stroke-width="208" stroke-dasharray="2.07" opacity=".2" d="m109,0v60M-99,2v58M317,2v58"/>

(this Barrister edges need 18 bytes more, instead of 7,893 when he draws them with Inkscape)

Wikipedia ribbonsEdit

Wikipedia ribbons exist in two sizes, the standard and the mini version. Most of them are PNG files. While the

  • Tireless Contributor ribbon 2.svg standard version can be simplified also with width=218 and height=60 (1:3.63), the
  • Tireless Contributor ribbon.svg small version can be well done with width=144 and height=60 (1:2.4), as above.
