coloured labels/tags in .md files?

Hey guys,

I’m all new to github and the world of programming and I’m just starting to learn all the different posibilities and features. So please bear with me if this is rahter common knowledge.

I’ve noticed that many people uses some sort of label on top of thier documentations or readme files. It doesn’t seem to be the same labels that you find in e.g. pull request, and I’m really curious to know some more about this. 

I found one example from Chalarangelo, but again, it seems like most people are using them.

I’ve attached a picture from the github page as well:

What is it? when do you use it? and how?

Thanks in advance! 

Peter
