Heraldry in the modern world

It is hard to believe that heraldry, even in these modern times far from the distant days of chivalry and fighting knights, has an important role in our lives. It would be impossible for something so deeply woven into our past to simply fade away as times changed, instead it has evolved into an “artform” that surrounds us and can be found in the most unlikely places.Every County, City and Town in virtually every country around the World has an Heraldic device of some sort, some are modern designs reflection the emergence of new countries and states others date from antiquity when Heraldry was at its height.Amongst the logos and emblems used by the High Street shops and businesses Heraldry is also to found:

One famous Bank has a Horse Rampant Regardent Sable as its logo. Corporate bodies of distinction, such as the BBC, have a Coat of Arms, venerable sporting institutions can also have a Coat of Arms, the one for Wimbledon has a tennis court theme.Country Cricket teams have part of their county Coat of Arms as their emblem.National and local football teams use heraldic devices on their shirts, the three lions of England appearing on the team shirts is derived from the Coat of Arms for England.The logos you see to the left and right of this page may look very familar to most people, however, every image has been constructed from our heraldic art database and is capable of being 'described' in a blazon!
