A badge of shame, also a symbol of shame, mark of shame, or simply a stigma, is typically a distinctive symbol required to be worn by a specific group or an individual for the purpose of public humiliation or persecution.
Ex. 1: Hitler made the Jewish people wear a 'mark of shame,' the yellow star.
Ex. 2: The STD called Syphilis leaves a mark of shame, such as sores on the lip.
