Heraldry, in Latin 'heroldus', is the study of coats of arms and crests; this includes composition, elucidation and research. The coat of arms is the distinctive family badge or crest, which indicates the state, city, estate, and family. Usually they were represented on flags, coins, seals, etc.



As a rule, a coat of arms consists of the shield and helmet. The shield is the basis of all coats of arms. The shape of shield changes with the times. The helmet had equal importance with the shield and is the second most important part of a coats of arms. Various figures can adorn coats of arms. In Lithuanian coats of arms, heraldic figures were not used: birds, animals, plants or the attributes of warriors. The Lithuanian coats of arms are different from other nations' coats of arms. They are more spiritual than military. Although the main part of coats of arms, shield and helmet, cannot be changed; the other parts are allowed to express some interpretation.

The colors on the coat of arms is very important:

  • Gold or yellow means nobility, honesty, prudence;
  • Silver or white means joy, brightness, innocence, rightousness;
  • Red means courage and love;
  • Blue means loyalty and conscientiousness;
  • Black means melancholy, wisdom and intelligence;
  • Green means freedom, beauty, joy, gladness, health and hope.
The first coats of arms appeared in Lithuania in the 13th and 14th centuries. The knights used to get distinctive badges in fights with enemies. The nobles used their coats of arms on shields, helmets, coats and flags. These badges couldn't be called coats of arms untill the 14th century because they didn't correspond to the rules of heraldry: they were missing the shield, special colors and inheritance. The badges originated from symbols. Even in the 5th century B.C. the towns had their signs.
The first coats of arms mostly were with the arrow motif.The other group of coats of arms were ofPolish origin and historically Lithuania had many in common with Poland. Many of themare borne by nobles nowadays. The Polish nobles used to go war under one flag. The noblesof one district used the same badge on their flags.In this way many families came to bear one coat of arms.
Over the cource of centuries the coats of arms changed. Lithuanian nobles, getting the Polish coats of arms, supplemented them with some figures,and changed their names.

The coats of arms appeared in Medieval Times. They are an international language of symbols, part of the nation's culture, which represents the state, town, or the person himself.
