Topic: Heraldic badge

  Heraldic badge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Heraldic badges were common in the Middle Ages particularly in England.
Heraldic badges fell into disuse after the Middle Ages but were revived by the College of Arms in 1906, and have since then often been included in new grants of arms, in addition to the traditional grant of the coat of arms.
When granted, the badge is typically illustrated on the letters patent containing the grant of arms, and upon a heraldic standard (flag).

Although badges have been in use from very early times, and as many passed from father to son and thus, being hereditary, could be claimed as heraldic, their importance seems to have been recognised only in recent centuries.
However, if we consider the heraldic badge as it is understood today, as a device quite separate from its owner's arms and yet heraldic in character, then we may count its British origin from the time when it came into general use as such during the reign of Edward III.

 Cariadoc's Miscellany: Concerning Heraldic Devices and Arms
Heraldic devices originally became popular when fighters started wearing closed-face helms; a knight's chance of getting killed because his own people failed to recognize him provided a powerful motive for designing distinctive devices that could be seen and identified even in bad weather or in the confusion of a battle.
Badges are used by groups, such as households, guilds, baronies, or kingdoms, and are worn to show membership in or allegiance to the group; also, any individual may register a badge to be worn by his family or retainers, or to be used himself as a secondary device.
The difference between the arms of a barony or other group and its badge is that the arms are only for the use of the official head of the group (the baron, in the case of a barony); the badge is for anyone in allegiance to the group.

The Stafford standard illustrated here features the swan badge believed to have been used by the family from their earliest days in England (they were of the richly rewarded de Tosny castle- building clan that came across with Duke William), and the famous Stafford knot.
We distinguished between the banner which bears a noble's arms (as if it were a square or rectangular shield) and the standard which bears his badges with, in the hoist, the cross of his country's patron saint.

In designing a heraldic device, whether a badge or coat of arms, the requirements are the commemoration of something noteworthy, simplicity of design, and practicability.
