Country Badges

Country badges are formerly known as State badges, when a user logs a geocache in a new country they get a country badge in the BadgeGen tab of their Profile Stats. The badges have the same look as the other badges in BadgeGen with the country's flag on the badge. The quality of the badge depends on the percentage of regions the user has found at least one geocache in.


For countries where enough data is available badge progress is as follows:

Quality Percentage
Bronze 0%[1]
Silver 15%
Gold 20%
Platinum 30%
Ruby 40%
Sapphire 50%
Emerald 75%
Diamond 100%

The 9th quality

The country badges can have a '9th quality' that the other badges can not have, this is the 'wooden quality' seen below. There are several countries where Project-GC does not have enough polygon data on the Region and County level to compute stats.[2] If a user has found at least one cache in such a country they will still get a country badge, but the badge will appear 'wooden'.
