A badge is a device, patch, or accoutrement which is presented or displayed to indicate some feat of service, a special accomplishment, a symbol of authority granted by taking an oath (e.g., police and fire), a sign of legitmate employment or student status, or as a simple means of identification. They are also used in advertising and publicity.
Badges have become highly collectible: in the UK, for example, the Badge Collectors' Circle has been in existence since 1980.
In the military, badges are often used to denote qualifications received through military training. Similarly, scouting organizations use them to show group membership and rank.
