Historically speaking, a coat of arms is a design on the shield of a medieval knight. The design was unique to an individual.The knight was allowed to pass it down to his descendants, and it became the family coat of arms.
Does my family have a Coat of Arms?
If you are British/Irish/Scottish/American the answer is probably YES. All you have to do is order this gig and let me know your family name.
I will look for it in a giant database of heraldry designs and send you the coat of arms as a 500x500 px JPG image. You also get the source file (vector format) along with a short history of your family name (if available).
