Coat of Arms -- Instructions
Information on the history and design of coats of arms and shields can be found in most encyclopedias under the heading "Heraldry." You can also find background information here. Use your research and your own creativity, but base your design primarily on accurate clues from your reading. Include the textual references which were used as the basis for your planning.
- Divisions: Divide the shield into sections; for example, use bars, diagonals, a cross, or create your own.
- Symbols: Adopt symbols for your person, such as animals (deer, lion, horse, bird, rabbit), man-made objects (castle, sword, key, shovel, gun), or items from nature (tree, flower, fruit).
- Colors: Choose a metal (gold, silver, copper) and a color (or colors) for your coat of arms. Then color in the shield accordingly.
- Motto: Create an inscription or motto; then write it on the scroll provided on the page.
In several paragraphs, explain the significance of the various elements of the coat-of-arms which you have designed for your person. You will need your own paper for this or you may print a special explanation form.
You can choose from two basic shield designs. Each page should print easily from your browser.

Shakespeare`s Queen Margaret calls him, rather nastily;
strictly speaking, his sign was a boar.
