I never understood how they arranged their ribbon bars or the medals that they represent. I think there is somewhat of a pattern, but not really? It seems that every one I see, it looks all the same medals being awarded (multiple times).

these are not medal-ribbon bar. infact chinese PLA no ribbon bar after 1955. 

chinese even no medal grade after 1955.

so chinese medal are very  un-interesting for collect after 1955.

these bar used for show officer 's rank and how long times for service at  PLA.

yellow + star = general; 

red+ star =  brigadier or colonel

purple + star =colonel or lieutenant colonel

blue + star = lieutenant colonel or major

little blue + star = captain or lieutenant captain

green + star = lieutenant captain or second lieutenant;

Thank you very much for this highly useful information!!  Are the ribbons the same for the navy and air force as well?

Thanks for the information. Good to know.

Seems confusing a bit, but I understand what they are for now.
