The Camp Crown (Latin: corona castrensis, "crown of the castrum"), also known as Vallary Crown, was a gold crown surmounted with replicas of the stakes of a palisade. It was a Roman military award, given to the first man who penetrated into an enemy camp or field during a combat.
In heraldry a camp crown is mounted atop the shields of coats of arms or emblems of a few units belonging to some armies.
The Palisado crown is a variant used in English Heraldry defined by "palisades", high fences consisting of pointed stakes, that are affixed to the outside of the rim.
Emblem of the Course of the History and Aesthetics of Military Music of the Spanish Army
