Why a Coat of Arms Commission?
It has always been the same, it is not the custom that coats of arms are bestowed rather they are commissioned. We talk about a coat of arms commission when someone wants to create a new coat of arms for their family.
Throughout the whole commissioning process, from the first conversation about the examination and processing of your family documents and the drawing up of the coat of arms outline right through to the commission report and certificate, you will be diligently accompanied and advised by our team of experts.
