Make your own Heraldic Shield.

Shield decorations can be found all over Scotland’s historic properties – pictured in stained glass windows and carved in stone.

The shape often forms part of a coat of arms, a design which represents a powerful person. These are called coats of arms because knights decorated the coats they wore on top of their armour with them, so you could tell who was who.
