      Grane oružanih snaga se obilježavaju bojom i to na epoletama, oznakama na reverima te obrubima na kapama. Kako po nekoliko službi dijeli istu boju, za svaku granu i službu postoje posebne oznake koje se dodaju na činove ili oznake na reverima. na isti način oznake nose i druge militarizirane službe, kao što su Žandarmerija i Vojna vatrogasna služba.

      The colors depend on the service branch (armă, literally "weapon") the bearer is a member of. They show on the shoulder slides which hold the rank insignia, on the band of combination caps, and on collar insignia. Because many different branches share a color (for example black or light blue), each branch has distinctive branch insignia (semne de armă), which is worn next to the rank insignia on the shoulder slides. Other militarized institutions, such as the Romanian Gendarmerie and the Military Firefighters Corps, also have branch insignia worn in the same way.

      The Romanian medal for the Second Balkan War was awarded liberally to both military soldiers and civilian workers after the Romania's victory over Bulgaria in 1913.  The medal is made of silver and measures 33 mm in diameter.  The planchet is suspended by a garland of laurel leaves. It also has a letter stamped on the bottom edge of the medal.  The significance of the letter is unknown, however according to some collectors it is hypothesized that it is a mint mark indicating the city where it was made.

     The obverse features an eagle with open wings.  The eagle is being used to represent the throne of Romania, as it is adorned in the royal items.  The eagle holds a sword in its right claw, a scepter in its left claw, a cross in its beak, and the crown on its head.  

     A central medallion displays a bust of King Carol I.  Impressed around the bust is the text: "CAROL I REGE AL ROMANIEI"  ("Carol I King of Romania"). The text around the outside of the medal reads: "IN AMINTIREA INALTATORULUI AVANT 1913" - "PACE" ("In the name of the High (Heavenly) King, in the year 1913 Peace").

      The reverse of the medal depicts the Romanian army crossing the Danube river into Bulgaria.  It also shows an angel holding a laurel crown in her outstretched hand.  The text runs across the top half of the planchet, and reads: DIN CARPATI PESTE DUNABELA BULGANI (From the Carpathians, across the Danube to the Balkans). The ribbon is blue, with an alternating orange and yellow stripe on each edge.

Many thanks to Mr. Kevin  A.  Ryan, European Military Medal Collector, for identyfing this medal
