Originally worn by medieval knights in tournaments, badges were worn on clothing by a ruler’s supporters and dependents. In the fourteenth century, they were widely distributed by kings and lords. The Hart badge was designed for the followers of King Richard II of England (1367–1399). His livery emblem was a white hart, or stag.
