Dreaming of donning a badge may be a representation of an internal yearning to embody a certain role or identity, a Freudian manifestation of the ego's quest for self-definition.

Thinking a bit more creatively... It could also signify a subconscious grappling with issues of authenticity and legitimacy. Conversely, if one dreams of being shown a badge, it may symbolize a confrontation with external authority or power dynamics. This could be a reflection of the superego's struggle with societal norms and expectations. It might also suggest a latent anxiety about judgement or evaluation from an external authority figure, a manifestation of the fear of the 'other's gaze'.

Conversely, if someone else is showing you a badge in your dream, it's a divine message asking you to respect and acknowledge the authority and wisdom of others. It's a spiritual reminder that every person we encounter is a teacher in some way, and there's always something valuable to learn. This dream is a call to humility, respect, and mutual recognition.
