A
presidential sash is a cloth sash worn by the presidents of many nations in the world, notably those in South America.

The sash is an important symbol of the continuity of the presidency, and is only worn by the president. When the president leaves office, the sash is formally presented to his or her successor as part of the official inauguration ceremony.

Presidential sashes are usually very colorful, and designed to resemble the nation's flag.

Another variant is the sash, which is a cloth belt designed to hold a robe together. A sash is usually tied about the waist. The Japanese equivalent of a sash, which is used for holding a kimono or yukata together, is called an obi. Sashes are traditionally part of formal military attire, and some decorations, such as the Legion d'honneur are worn with a special sash. In South and Latin America, the president's authority is indicated by a special Presidential sash. Decorative sashes may pass from the shoulder to the hip rather than around the waist.
