Ancient world[ edit ] The origin of the commander’s baton is remote but common to all pastoral societies and the ones in Egypt and Rome are manifest through art. In western Europe most are later variations of the ones consuls received and that represented the overall command of those tied to the fasces that represented the Roman tribes that comprised the Roman people. With time they came to be extended to the commanders that held supreme authority, civilian and military over the provinces of the republic, and later under the dictatorships and finally the emperor.
A short, heavy, white baton was the symbol of the imperial mandate given to a Roman military legate. He held it high proclaiming “above your head and mine” to represent the emperor. It is possible that the Spartan cipher rod, scytale , also had a related military status, pre-dating the Roman baton, but the first detailed reference in Plutarch dates from the Roman period.

Doppellitze, circa WWI officer with Litzen In 19th century German armies, Guard and other elite regiments wore lengths of double braid Doppellitze encircling all or most of the collar as a mark of distinction. By the middle of World War I these ornate collars had been reduced to an embroidered representation of short lengths of braid joined at the ends, sewn to patches worn at the front of the collar.
When the Reichsheer was established in as Germany’s first national army  Litzen were prescribed as the universal collar device for all personnel other than generals, and the Third Reich continued the practice. Officers’ M35 Litzen Dress Field and service On the dress tunic Waffenrock and the later “ornamented” uniform, the Litzen were embroidered in fine aluminum thread on a patch of Abzeichentuch in the wearer’s Waffenfarbe , or branch color; the backing also showed through in the space between the two Litzen, the Mittelstreife.
On field and service uniforms, beginning in late , the patch Patten was dark bottle-green to match the collar; the Waffenfarbe “showed through” in fact colored cord was sewn into the center strip of each braid, the Litzenspiegel. For enlisted men service Litzen were machine-woven in silver-grey rayon; officers’ were embroidered more elaborately in white silk or aluminum thread, and were somewhat larger to match their higher collars.
NCOs’ M35 Litzen and Tresse Dress Field Non-commissioned officers Unteroffiziere wore standard enlisted collar patches but were distinguished by a strip of 9mm silver-grey diamond-woven rayon braid Tresse sewn around the collar’s front and lower edges, except on the dress Waffenrock where the Tresse was bright aluminum and encircled the collar’s upper edge. Enlisted field Litzen By the fast-growing Heer had found that it was impractical, for the enlisted field uniform, to manufacture and stock a multitude of collar patches in assorted Waffenfarben which also had to be sewn on and frequently changed by unit tailors.
Accordingly, new universal Litzen were introduced with the Litzenspiegel and Mittlestreife woven in dark green to match the backing patch, and which could be applied at the factory; Waffenfarbe was now displayed on the shoulder-straps, which simply buttoned on and were easily switched. With the wartime change to lower-visibility insignia enlisted Litzen were woven in matte “mouse-grey” with field-grey stripes, which were at first sewn to green collar patches as before but increasingly directly to the collar, which beginning in was made in feldgrau like the uniform; grey Patten were never produced.
The troops however preferred the green patches and collars if they had or could get them, especially on “clean” uniforms for walking-out; and long-service veterans took particular pride in pre Litzen with colored stripes. NCO tunic with post insignia In contrast, officers’ service uniform collar patches never changed.
While most officers in the front lines wore the enlisted field uniform as per wartime regulations, many opted to have their green-and-silver Kragenpatten added instead of or on top of the factory Litzen.
