Many characters in the Girl Genius comics wear or display badges. The badges are used as cloak clasps, lockets, or other clothing. Badges are also seen on machinery to identify the owner or owning House. The use of badges in these manners is an old heraldic practice, and many our-world examples can be found throughout history.

Note that the gas connector ring Gil slides onto Agatha's ring finger has the badge stamped into the band — as she looks at it, she remarks, "You guys really do sign everything, don't you?"

Many badges are seen with and without wings. The significance of the wings has been discussed, but no consensus has been reached.
