Unveiling of the official medals for the 2014 Black Belt World Global Festival which will be 

held in Raleigh, North Carolina USA during the weekend of April 11-12.

The BBW Global symbol and the Torch are bordered by the Laurel Wreath-- made of interlocking branches

and leaves, in Greek mythology, Apollo, god of sun, truth, healing, and knowledge is crowned 

with a laurel wreath. In ancient Greece, these were awarded in athletic competitions such as the ancient 

Olympic games. In Rome, they were symbols of martial victory, given to a successful commander in his

triumph. The Laurel Wreath is a symbol of victory representing both champions in life and winners in competition. 

The spirit of Black Belt World is very well represented in the medal design this year.
