Coat of arms has been used for centuries from ancient Egypt to this day throughout the world. Coat of arms is a design that is uniquely made for families, a person, and corporations. In history, coat of arms was made because it was used when fighting in tournaments or wars. In wars, people wore helmets and it was hard to recognizefrom allies and foes. So, everyone used these crests on shields to indicate who is on which team. Creating the coat of arms for war went across the nation from priests to officials and then was used to sign documents. Eventually, peasants and other people within the nation used it for their family and professions. Through the early times of heraldry, coat of arms was restricted to where it can be made, and to whom. Now, in the 21st Century, educational uses of coat of arms are regulated, in America, as trademarks.
