Coats of arms are the complete heraldic achievement of a person entitled to bear ams.  The designs of the Coats-Of-Arms were originally derived from the markings that knights bore on their surcoats and shields to distinguish one another in battle.  As time progressed, Coats of Arms were bestowed upon nobles and their families, rather than solely knights.
