The ITIL pin or ITIL lapel badge has been the only overt indication that an individual has sat and passed an ITIL Qualification. In those distant days of ITIL v2 Qualifications and Badges, the norm was for the IT Service Management Forum (itSMF) to post a congratulatory letter to each individual who had passed an ITIL exam accompanied with the relevant coloured lapel badge - Green (Foundation), Blue (Practitioner) and Red (Managers).
The arrival of ITIL v3 promised new coloured badges, although the colours seemed rather dull and non distinct, reflecting the colours schemes of the book covers of the ITIL core books and associated qualifications Foundation, Capability, Lifecycle, Expert, and Master.

The latest advice from APMG (who manage the ITIL Qualification Scheme on behalf of the owners of ITIL, OGC) regarding obtaining your ITIL v3 lapel badge(s) is to contact the Examination Institute that you undertook the examination with.
