What is the black plastic looking stuff on your trunk lid? Is it vinyl wrap? Or a kit?
The gt badge is glued on and has two prongs that hold it centred in the lid,
Best way is heat and fishing line and take your time. Although this means if you do remove the badge you will have two holes to fill and then have to sand prep paint and blend

Unless it's already been done which is why I asked what's on the trunk lid itself.

What kind of plastic is behind it? A solid plastic or is it vinyl wrapped?

If it's a hard plastic (solid) just heat it up with a blow dryer on high hold it about 2-3" away so the glue starts to loosen up, you can either use a plastic spatula or fishing line and remove the badge slowly after that get some goo gone and apply to the glue left behind and rub off with a rag. Might have to repeat a few times but it will work.
