   Custom Shields for Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Since man has been identifying himself for centuries with various symbols, this can be seen simply as an evolutionary step of tribal identification which we seem to need as a people. To create your own family crest should reflect what your family represents now. Are there certain qualities that you honor, such as integrity, patience or courage? What symbols represent those to you? Do you want to go for a more traditional look or do you have your own design in your mind’s eye when you think of those qualities? Do you associate your family’s name with a certain animal or architectural structure such as a castle with its wall of protection? A modern day Family Crest can be anything that you wish to inspire your own family towards a more noble life. Do you aspire to your own shield? Perhaps you have returned from active combat and wish to immortalize an act of bravery for your family to draw motivation for the next few generations. The ideas are as plentiful now as they were back in the times of the noble knights and ladies of an age that reveled in displays of pageantry and boldness of grand deeds.

Medieval shields simply give us the messages from the past, the reminders of valor and historical records of events and people. Family crests give us the present and hope for future generations. Whether you wish to recreate a Coat of Arms passed down through your family on a shield, or simply wish to own a part of the past or create a modern Family Crest, swordsandarmor.com has a resource now available to meet your requirements.
