What is a badge?

When changing the settings around for Push notifications on a lot of apps (all apps with Push ability?), there are three things you can change:

Badge: On/Off
Sound: On/Off
Alert: On/Off

It's easy to guess what the Sound is, as well as the alert, but I was wondering what a badge is?

Is that the red circle at the top-right of the app icon?

Apologies if this is the wrong section But thank you in advance for any help

Yep, little red circle, usually with a number in it, but it can have text.
