Heraldry first originated approximately 800 years ago when brightly coloured tunics were worn by Knights over their armour to identify themselves. The first Shields hung in medieval times were those actually used in battle. Over the centuries this custom has continued but the Shields have become much smaller.
“The seven ages of man “can now be symbolised in decorative fashion by Heraldic Plaques – School: - College or University: - Regiment, Company, Club, Professional Body and any Arms associated with your Family Surname.
