Unicorns in Heraldry

The Unicorn was not widely used in early Heraldry, probably because of its ephemeral and mystical nature and heraldic symbols tended to be more battle oriented. It became popular in the 15th century and first began to appear in the royal arms of Scotland that was used from the 12th century to 1603 and the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as used by Queen Elizabeth II from 1953 to the present (as used in all her realms except Scotland).

Even though the Unicorn is a mystical creature, its depiction has been found in widely different geographically regions since the Bronze Age in paintings, even being found in seals in one of the most ancient of civilizations, the Indus Valley located in modern day Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. By the Renaissance era, when it began to appear in family crests and coat of arms, it had become a symbol of ‘Purity and Grace’. It was depicted as a wild and passionate animal and in Heraldry, who usually show the Unicorn with goat’s hooves, a lion’s tail and a slender spiraling horn, usually chained and collared, an indication of the hardest of all virtues to attain, Temperance.
