Blazonry, a part of heraldry, is the formal description or illustration of coats of arms. Blazonry embodies a grammar and vocabulary which describe the meaning of a blazon. The field of heraldry, of ancient origin, is the system by which coats of arms and other armorial bearings are devised, displayed, described, recorded and granted.
