The Use of Family Name Shields
Traditional coat of arms designs date back to the 12th century, where decorating defensive shields became a useful way of identifying knights in the heat of battle. These insignia were created by officials known as heralds, who also recorded and regulated armorial bearings. Their records were known as blazons. Typically a blazon has three components - arms (the 'flag' part of the image), crest (the design surrounding the flag), and the motto (which often originated as a war cry).
Very nice!!! Great consumer service.
We ordered a family crest plaque for my daughter for Christmas . It is absolutely beautiful, exactly what I wanted. It looks beautiful in her new home. The owner is extremely helpful. Will definitely order from here again.
This is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship - from the details on the heraldic shield to the wooden backing. A special gift to present to a family that was immediately enjoyed.
