Cap badges are a modern form of heraldry and their design generally incorporates highly symbolic devices.
In the British Army (as well as Commonwealth armies) each regiment and corps has its own cap badge. The cap badge of The Royal Lancers is called a motto by those within the regiment, that of the Royal Horse Artillery is known as a Cypher and that of the Coldstream Guards is known as a Capstar.
The concept of regimental badges appears to have originated with the British Army. The Encyclopædia Britannica's 1911 Edition notes that although branch badges for infantry, cavalry and so on were common to other armies of the time, only the British Army wore distinctive regimental devices.
For a period leading up to Remembrance Day artificial poppies are worn by many people in the United Kingdom to commemorate those killed in war. When worn in uniform the plastic stem of the poppy is discarded and the paper petals are fitted behind the beret badge where a metal cap badge is worn.
