In the days gone by, families take it upon themselves to have family emblems, coat of arms and crests. Each design done to give voice to each family history, successes and achievements. Certain colours on the crest also have its special meaning.
The crest is a symbol of pride, courage, strength, loyalty and good character. For those with family crests, it also shows off ones roots and heritage.
In recent times, designers have used crests as an emblem for decorating jackets and blazers. And to tell the truth, it does distinguish the individual and give beauty and a sense of honour.
