Coat of Arms have great meaning

Ive been looking for my family crest and my husbands family crest. I came across this bit of info. that I found interesting and thought that I would share it......


A coat of arms is the graphic symbol of a family. It is a historic design and an identification which has endured all social and political upheavals for nearly 900 years. And no two can be exactly alike.

The bearing of a coat of arms is a great and positive influence on a family because, for itís very purpose, it represents family unity. It gives the individual a sense of place and belonging to a family. And it encourages the social structure of family, itís values, honor, and service to society.

As a coat of arms is displayed it serves as a constant reminder to bearers of that name of their ongoing responsibility to add meaning and honor to their family name. It graphically represents a proud relationship with their familyís heritage. It serves as a visible reminder of a relationship between past, present and future generations.

Displaying a coat of arms one calls their own, can only increase itís meaning, itís value, and itís influence. It adds honor and recognition to the original bearer of the arms. What greater honor could be bestowed upon an original bearer than to assure itís continuance and influence with present and future generations?

Coat of arms are authentic, historic and powerful symbols that tie our past, present, and future generations together. There is nothing, even today, nearly 900 years later, that replaces their positive value to ancestral families.

In every sense then, your family coat of arms symbolizes a strong and enduring continuance of family unity. It symbolizes a heritage of belonging. And it re-empowers the embattled values of family unity and family heritage.
