This badge shows a drawn longbow, which may have a more than military significance, being also a symbol of male virility.
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.
