Heraldry Symbolism

Armorial bearings are marks of honor made up of fixed and determined colors and figures either hereditary or bestowed by Sovereign Princes as a reward for military or other service, and which serve to denote the descent and alliances of the bearer, or to distinguish states, cities, and societies, whether civil, ecclesiastical, or military.

Family Crests and Coats of Arms Elements

This device was worn on top of the helmet, and was usually made of wood, metal, or boiled leather. It provided the double advantage of easy identification and addiction of height to the wearer. In heraldry today, the crest and arms are usually displayed together.

The motto generally evolved from the watchword or war-cry of the family. Often the motto contained an allusion to a memorable vent in the family history; e.g., the "Bruce" motto 'Fuimus' (Latin-'We were') refers to the fact that the family were once the kings of Scotland.

The helmet varied in shape in different ages and countries, and always in the case of titled arms. The Esquire Helm, as depicted in family arms, is always with closed visor and facing to the left.

The mantling was spread over and draped from the helmet, and served as protection, "to repel the extremities of wet, cold, and heat, and to preserve the armor from rust". The numerous cuts and slits indicated that it had been torn and hacked in the field of battle, and betokened a certain evidence of prowess.
