      In a nutshell, your arms (or device) say "This is
      ME." Your badge says "This is MINE".

      Your arms are flown on your banner or whatever
      when you are present. Your badge can be used to
      mark things that belong to you, physical
      possessions, the livery of servants, etcetera.
