When knights of old went into battle protected by chain mail and armour it was hard to distinguish one from another. So they began to choose signs for their shields by which they could be recognised. The designs were usually bold and simple so that they could be seen from a distance.  Heraldry is the name given to the study of coats of arms. Divisions, ordinaries, charges, supporters, marshalling and mottoes are just some of the topics covered in Heraldry. Popular heraldic beasts include lions, unicorns, eagles and dragons.
