The Coat Of Arms – A Historical View

A coat of arms is a unique heraldic design that originated in medieval Europe as a system of visual identification on the battlefield. It consists of a shield or escutcheon displaying various symbolic elements following a specific set of rules and terminology.

At its core is the shield itself, known as the field, which is divided into different sections. The top is called the chief, the bottom the base, the left side the sinister, and the right the dexter. The vertical middle third is the pale, and the horizontal middle third the fess. This grid system allows for precise placement of the charges, which are the symbolic designs on the field.

The colors and patterns used, called tinctures, include the metals or (yellow/gold) and argent (white), the colors gules (red), azure (blue), sable (black), vert (green), and purpure (purple), as well as furs like ermine. Ordinaries are basic geometric charges, while other common charges include crosses, lions, fleurs-de-lis and more.

Royal Coat of Arms Examples

Beyond just the shield, a full coat of arms or armorial achievement incorporates additional elements. This includes the helmet with its mantling cloth, the wreath joining the mantling to the helmet, the crest which sits atop the helmet, and optional additions like mottoes, supporters or a coronet.

Originating as a way to identify knights in battle and at tournaments, coats of arms eventually came to denote family descent, adoption, ownership and other affiliations. From the 17th-19th centuries, they became increasingly embellished before returning to more classical simplicity in modern times.

While originally reserved for military families, coats of arms are now used by a wide range of people and organizations as hereditary or granted symbols representing their identities and histories through the language of heraldry.  At Rangecraft, we have designed our personal coat of arms to symbolically express our commitment to excellence in quality of materials, production, and years of service.
