Coat of Arms or Crest
Coats of Arms originated as identifying features for knights in battle. By wearing striking colours, patterns and emblems over their armour or on their helmets they could be identified in a similar way to football teams strips or jockey silks today.Over the centuries these emblems became more ceremonial. They evolved into family badges, which served the original purpose of identification while becoming increasingly decorative.
You will probably know what your family crest is and may even have a drawing of it. If so, you can scan it to us in high quality and we can provide a quote based on the number of colours and your chosen border. If you do not have a drawing that you are happy with, we can introduce you to the College of Arms who will produce an excellent small watercolour of your crest for about £150.
