Badges are small count and labeling components, which are used to add extra information to an interface element. You can use them to draw users' attention to a new element, notify about unread messages or provide any kind of additional info.

Default markup

<a href="#" class="badge bg-azure">azure</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-indigo">indigo</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-purple">purple</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-pink">pink</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-red">red</a>

<a href="#" class="badge bg-green">green</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-teal">teal</a>
<a href="#" class="badge bg-cyan">cyan</a>

Empty badges

Leave the HTML element empty if you want to create badges without any text. Empty badges are particularly useful if you want to make an interface element more noticeable regardless of limited space.
