Pilgrim badge: Yorkist Sun

This yorkist symbol bears a strong resemblance to a traditional heraldic ‘estoile’ type, or it may represent the Star of Bethlehem.
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.
