Symbolism has become interwoven with history and daily life of our race for at least 8 centuries. What is now deniable, has to be charitably accepted as having been credible and estimable in those enlightened ages, when the crudest ideas gained acceptance among the highest intellects and foremost heroes of whom the world could boast. It is only by taking a broad-minded view of the limitations of knowledge in the past, that one can derive pleasure from the study of ancient armoury.


The following are some of the more common heraldic symbols and their meanings as suggested by some historians and heralds. There are literally thousands of heraldic symbols and charges. Here are some of the most often referenced symbols mentioned in blazoning, and the heraldry symbolism attributed.
