Why Do We Use Enamel Badges?
Why Do We Use Enamel Badges? This is a question that we at House of Logos sometimes get’s asked. The simple answer is to be recognised as being part of an organisation/group or showcasing the fact you have achieved something and want people to know this, but in a more subtle way.
Undoubtedly the most famous of all enamel badge wearers is none other than the current American President, Barack Obama. He is seen wearing the American Star and Stripes enamel badge lapel pin on most occasions. This is an obvious act of pride and makes him stand out as one of the worlds most prolific leaders.
Many people are proud of were they are born and like to be seen to be associated with the country, county or region. This is clearly the case in the UK region of Yorkshire were they even have a special Yorkshire Day on August the 1st. The Yorkshire enamel badge shown at the top of the screen is quite controversial, as people have debated whether there should be one or 2 points showing at the top. According to the Yorkshire Badges website there should be 2 points at the top and 1 point at the bottom of the enamel badges as this then forms a Y shape.
It just goes to show there more to enamel badges than meets the eye.
