Badges

The Collection of Badges comprises some 12,000 objects from around the middle of the 19th century to the present day. It contains badges from all different social contexts. They stem from May demonstrations, from political parties, clubs and other organisations and institutions, from sports events and cultural functions. The badges in the collection do not have the character of distinctions or decorations, which distinguishes them from the collection of Orders. There are also a few medals or stickers that can be worn so that there is hardly any overlapping with the collection of numismatics.

The collection is continuously being expanded, as a rule through donations from private persons, organisations and institutions.
