This was the badge of Arthur, Prince of Wales. Badges were commonly issued to show affiliation to a particular household. The design shows target arrows: showing broadheads and blunts with sowsback fletchings, indicating a sporting rather than a military use.

Badge making did not only serve a religious market. It occupied a position in all aspects of life as for example, political and military to show allegiance, celebrate amorous intent, and indicate sporting interests, often with a satirical flavour.
