The coat of arms is embroidered with heraldic and hereditary symbols and decorated with bearings. Its origins can be traced back to medieval Europe, with knights using coats of arms to establish identity. Today, many countries around the world have a coat of arms, including Spain, Somalia, Portugal, and Croatia. Some cities and provinces also have coats of arms, for example, Berlin and Hamburg. They are decorated with ancient elements and symbols derived from history. Elements such as crests, mottos, emblems, and double crosses are displayed as well as dolphins, fish, and other species. Many coats of arms incorporate coronets, wreaths, and shields that make them truly unique pieces.
