Before you learn a thing or two about United Trophy, we want to go over the history of our company and about trophies, in general. That history began a long time ago.
History of Trophies
Here’s a brief history of trophies for those curious folk who want to learn a thing or two about the past. This history begins a long, long time ago on a continent not too far away. The story starts with the Greeks. That group of innovators who brought us democracy, theater, and the Olympics.During the Olympics, the Greek winners would receive little, hardly even a pat on their back. Winners would receive laurel wreaths, but you can’t really hang a laurel wreath on your wall (maybe your door, but that’s a little too festive, don’t you think?), or place it on a bookcase. It was then determined that winners could receive something more of substance, so a container in the shape of a vase was handed out with olive oil in it. It wasn’t until the 17th century that chalices became awards, and this was on the American continent. Soon, trophies became the go-to award.
