As well as being used in royal heraldry, the badge is sometimes used to symbolise Wales, particularly in Welsh rugby union and Welsh regiments of the British Army.

The badge has no connection with the native Princes of Wales. Edward bore (as an alternative to his differenced royal arms) a shield of Sable, three ostrich feathers argent, described as his "shield for peace", probably meaning the shield he used for jousting.

These arms can be seen several times on his chest tomb in Canterbury Cathedral, alternating with his royal arms the royal arms of King Edward III differenced by a label of three points argent. The prince also used badges of one or more ostrich feathers in a number of other contexts. The feathers had first appeared at the marriage of Edward III to Philippa of Hainault, and it is therefore likely that the Black Prince inherited the badge from his mother.

Philippa was descended from the Counts of Hainault, whose eldest son bore the title "Count of Ostrevent", the ostrich French: autruche, old French spellings including ostruce feathers being perhaps a heraldic pun on that name.

Henry IV used a badge of a single ostrich feather with a scroll entwined around it bearing the motto "Ma sovereyne" or "Sovereygne"; and, of Henry's sons, Henry V used ostrich feathers as a secondary royal badge at various times.

Thomas, Duke of Clarence used an ermine ostrich feather labelled; John, Duke of Bedford an ostrich feather with the "Sovereygne" scroll; and Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester an ostrich feather studded with fleurs-de-lis. Similar badges were used by other royal princes. The first Prince of Wales to use the badge in its modern form i.
