While the 1956 Summer Olympics were held in Melbourne, Australia the equestrian events were held separately in Stockholm, Sweden. Each badge has the same design, but colors and ribbons are different depending on the holder’s status.
Green – Official’s badge
Blue/Yellow – Attache’s badge
Red – Organizing Committee badge
Due to the fact that Stockholm only held one set of events these badges are rare and highly collectible. If you have an Olympic badge from the 1956 Stockholm events please contact us for an evaluation so we can help you authenticate and value your item.
