Coat of Arms

I took these pictures in a chapel in Normandy, these are family coats of arms.  A fine tradition long lost.  

If we were creating a family crest or coat of arms (I am sure there is a difference, but I will be sloppy and use the two terms interchangeably) what would I want it to contain? 

For me, bees, airplanes, scales of justice, an academic hat, a penguin, a sheep, and a rainbow flag. 

What would need to be on yours? 


  1. yarn & knitting needles, a train engine, a baseball, a cat, the liberty bell

  2. Stars, the moon, and an owl - - because I'm notoriously nocturnal.

  3. My family has one; it has boars heads on it. It is rawther unusual .
