Documentation and examples for badges, our small count and labelling component.

Small and adaptive tag for adding context to just about any content.



Badges scale to match the size of the immediate parent element by using relative font sizing and em units.

Contextual variations

Add any of the below mentioned modifier classes to change the appearance of a badge.

Default Primary Success Info Warning Danger
<span class="badge badge-default">Default</span>
<span class="badge badge-primary">Primary</span>

<span class="badge badge-info">Info</span>
<span class="badge badge-warning">Warning</span>
<span class="badge badge-danger">Danger</span>

Conveying meaning to assistive technologies

Using color to add meaning only provides a visual indication, which will not be conveyed to users of assistive technologies – such as screen readers. Ensure that information denoted by the color is either obvious from the content itself (e.g. the visible text), or is included through alternative means, such as additional text hidden with the .sr-only class.

Pill badges

Use the .badge-pill modifier class to make badges more rounded (with a larger border-radius and additional horizontal padding). Useful if you miss the badges from v3.

Default Primary Success Info Warning Danger

<span class="badge badge-pill badge-primary">Primary</span>
<span class="badge badge-pill badge-success">Success</span>
