What Is Badge?

The badge, in short, is the mark worn on the body to express identity, occupation, and honor. It has a long history and its origins can be traced back to the totems of the primitive social tribes.

Zhang Zi changed their badge in order to the mess Qin army." This is the earliest written record in China. But the badges referred to here are essentially different from the badges in the present.
