Many projects use badges, such as shields.io to reflect status of build, code quality, community and other such items. These are usually added as part of a README.
It should be possible to make badges a first-class citizen of a project and display them prominently in the project's description.
- In project settings, include an area where owners and admins can set badges.
- It should be possible to add badges, by providing a badge image URL and hyperlink
- It should be possible to edit badges
- It should be possible to remove badges
- Display badges in the project description
- Badges should support variable substitution in both the URL and image
- Badges should support positioning so the order of the position can be set. The UI for this will be completed in another issue, but the backend should support it initially to make future work easier.
- When adding a new badge, set the position value to the next highest value
- Order return and display of badges by position

Labels for differentiating project badges and group badges
We will allow users to create the badges on the group level(https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/41176), so we need to provide a way to help users differentiate the badges.
There are three types of error:
Adding the badge failed, please check the Badge link and Badge image link and try again.
