Heradlry symbolism

Postby Remyth » Mon Sep 04, 2006 12:50 am

Hi all,
I got interested in my coat of arms when I had to find it for a class presentation last year. I found it (not Wunz :( ), and I wanted to know what all of the stuff stood for. So, after searching a little bit, I came up with this site. I found all the symbols here, and I found out that I am decended from people who where bodyguards. Pretty neat, eh?

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you my find.

In Christ Jesus my Savior,
Thomas Wunz <><

This site is cool, but it costs money. It does give helpful information for free, though. Thanks for sharing it.

The information is what I was talking about. It tells you what the colors and symbols and everything stand for. Sorry if that sounder harsh, it wasn't meant to.

That's what I assumed. I was just commenting on the other stuff in the site, which cost money.

I've seen a lot of nice information (Wikipedia is always my first stop after google) about heraldry, and this website you've listed is quite nice as well - a lot of good data.

Of course, you actually need go no further than our CC resources to find a really great article as well. 8) This is a nice little article about heraldry too, and how it ties in with some of the LEGO shields we all know.

I never saw that, Ottoatm! Even though I've been looking around for stuff about it, I would never of thought to look here. THe article is great, although I do not wish to change the subject to it(as thereis a thread already going :wink: .)

Thanks,

Glad you like it ~ I always have to remind myself that CC has a lot of great resources and articles, besides their forum. 8)

Anyway, I did bookmark your page as well - as it has a lot of good text and info on one page.
