Our world class international experts proof and register your family crest


Are you perhaps wondering why you need your family coat- of-arms to be internationally registered?

The answer is simple – by registering your family coat-of-arms, you can protect it from wrongful use by unauthorized persons.

The family coat-of-arms which was endowed by you or one of your ancestors is meant to be used exclusively by you and your family. And that is why it is so important to take steps to ensure that nobody else can use it as his or her own.

Having it recorded in eherold internationally protect your rights to use the coat-of-arms.


Internationalisation and globalisation have become two of the most common buzzwords in today’s world order. In the past, most things were seen in a national context – including heraldry – but today this way of looking at things is no longer enough. In order to be able to gather and record modern heraldry in all its complexity it has become essential to create a platform upon which to present coats-of-arms from all countries. But even of greater importance is that these heraldic devices are assessed by someone who is well versed in the heraldic laws of the respective country before being released and made public. Our heralds convene regularly in colloquia and congresses to discuss existing laws and to exchange views and opinions. eherold represents the next level in the internationalization of heraldry because, as with any other product, a coat-of arms also needs to be placed under protection. Not only nationally, but worldwide.

Whoever has, and is allowed to bear a coat-of-arms – that means it is a part of his or her everyday life – is demonstrating in particular the family’s identity because the arms express more than just a name. It represents the values of a family and the symbols it bears are an expression of these values.

Heraldry represents one of the oldest traditions of communication. And even long before the appearance of the first alphabets, people communicated with one another using signs and symbols. And that is why a coat-of-arms has such an immediate effect on us today – it bears a message which does not rely on words but sends images straight to our subconscious mind
