  • Product Details


A coat of arms was a distinctive heraldic design on a tunic used to cover and protect armour, but the term is more widely applied to mean a full heraldic achievement which consists of a shield and certain accessories. The design is a symbol unique to a person, family, corporation or a state. Historically coats of arms were first used by knights and lords on battle fields as a way to identify allied from enemy soldiers. The heraldic designs expanded and other social classes, who never went to battle began to use coats of arms. At first those closest to the lords and knights such as squires used coat of arms but others also started to use them .Priests and other dignities adopted coat of arms as seals and insignia .A hundred years later By the mid 13th century commoners and peasants were adopting heraldic devices.
