Find Your Heraldic Symbols Meaning
This section of our site is intended to provide you with additional information regarding the Coat of Arms and the various items which it includes in it’s makeup. For the sake of simplicity and understanding we will at times use more modern, or more commonly used, terms in our descriptions. An example being our graphic immediately below. While we refer to it as a Coat of Arms, it is actually a Full Achievement of Arms. The difference being that the Coat of Arms technically consists of only the Shield portion and the charges which are on the shield while the Full Achievement of Arms includes the Crest, Mantling, Motto, Name, Supporters, and the Helm. But, common usage today for display purposes includes all of those in the term Coat of Arms which is what we shall do here as well.
