Design a Coat of Arms (Knebworth House)
Print or use this as a template to design your own coat of arms. A coat of arms is the name for the colourful decoration that knights had on their shields and sometimes on other parts of what they wore. They date back to the 1100s, when they were worn over armour during battles. They were used so that knights could tell each other apart. The designs may be inherited, meaning that they pass from a father to his children.
