Wife says that in Greek it's called a “koncarda”.

I’m looking for a more official word than ribbon, badge, or medal.

PS: please hurry, I need the answer asap.

Pennants are those triangular flags. As much as I hate it I’ll have to go with “Rosette”! :?

I’m sure there’s another more formal word for them but I seem to have lost it… damn I need to defrag my memory.

No, that's bunting ... or banners.

The direct translation of "koncarda" is actually 'lapel badge'.

But, OK, go with the gay names. :P
