In England, people call buttons “badges.” Artist Peter Blake designed The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band record cover, and loved badges.  Here’s a painting he made called, Self Portrait with Badges.

Also, the his painting On the Balcony features people wearing badges.

While there’s no buttons on the Sgt Pepper’s cover, there is a button collector in the top row with a mustache and hat between Fred Astaire and the Vargas girl named Richard Merkin.
