The coat of arms, which originated in Europe, is also often referred to as armorial bearings, armorial devices, or heraldic devices. The coat of arms, which was utilized initially by knights as a means of identification and distinguishing themselves from enemy soldiers, could belong to a group of people or even one specific person.
This tradition, which goes back nearly 900 years, symbolizes the history of a family name. A family coat of arms may be unique to not only a family, but a person, corporation, or state as well. Coats of arms belong to the tradition of heraldry, which refers to the design and display of the arms. When towns, countries or villages use coats of arms, it is called civic heraldry.
A traditional coat of arms usually includes a patterned shield that is decorated with a crest, a helmet, a motto, a crown, a wreath, and a mantling. A coat of arms may be used by a school, college, church, guild, corporation, or family to reflect their origins.
