Heraldry: 1) Heraldry is the graphic representation of an individual or family (a “coat of arms”) that is on a shield or other conventional military-derived shape (like a flag, or surcoat worn over armor); is heritable according to specific customs (which differ in different European countries); has recognizable graphic design elements.

HERALDRY. Heraldry, the science of hereditary symbolism, is a discipline of modern origin, deriving from the practice of medieval heralds who put together collections of coats of arms — colored emblems or devices that developed from the decorations on the coats of arms of warriors.

They are hereditary when the shield is familial, and uniform or constant if they represent an ecclesiastical. The early works on heraldry—verses and narrative poems by poet-heralds—appeared during the second half of the 13th century. The oldest book of heraldry, the Züricher Wappenrolle,and the first exposition of heraldic regulations by the Italian jurist Bartolus date to the first half of the 14th century.
