Wound Medal

Wound Medal (Croatian: Ranjenička kolajna) is established "in honor of those who, as homeland defenders, were wounded or injured during combat with the enemy".[citation needed] A golden wound medal was rewarded to those who had 61% (or more) of physical disability and killed, until iron wound medal was rewarded to those who had to 60% of physical disability. The number of injuries was marked with one, two or three blue stripes, and for those who had more than three injuries, oak leaves were awarded.
