Very simple. Get an flashing led. That is a led having inbuilt flashing feature. Get a small 3v coin like battery. Connect the positive of that battery to led via a small 100 ohm resistor and negative to other end of led. Voila ! You have flashing badge !

You can buy Blinking for Flashing LEDs that do not require any type of circuit.

Take a look at a few of these online:

Parts Express

eBay

Electronis Goldmine

Amazon

Radio Shack

You can get flashing LED's that you then build a simple circuit around.
I might make an instructable some day on this subject.
