About the Maker

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).
