The origin and history of heraldry
There are various ideas about the origin of heraldic arms. As early as predynastic Egypt, an emblem known as a serekh was used to indicate the extent of influence of a particular regime, sometimes carved on ivory labels attached to trade goods, but also used to identify military allegences as well as other ways.
Ancient warriors often decorated their shields with patterns and mythological motifs. These symbols could be used to identify the warriors when their faces were obscured by helmets. Army units of the Roman Empire were identified by the distinctive markings on their shields.
Though heraldry is about 900 years old, it's still in use today. Many cities and towns in Europe and around the world still make use of arms.
