What are Funeral Badges


Have you ever noticed the different colour square cloth pinned on the sleeve of the bereaved family members’ white t-shirt at a funeral? Do you know what are those?

Buddhist and Taoist funerals use these badges made from cloth as a tool to signify the relationship between the deceased and the living. Different dialect groups will have a slightly different set of badge design. In olden days, it is also used as a sign of mourning where bereaved family members wear them for 49 days. Now, bereaved family will remove the badges after the funeral.
