On our webpages, we present you with heraldically correct coats-of-arms from all over the world; arms which have been checked for correctness by experts in the respective country.
Globalisation is one of the top issues of our times. Everything is becoming more and more international and therefore it is all the more important that your family arms enjoy international protection. By registering your family coat-of-arms with Wappen Herold you ensure that it is legally protected worldwide. We cooperate with a network of internationally reputed heralds.
eherold also provides professionals and anyone interested in the subject with an opportunity to access information on the current status of contemporary heraldry in various countries of the world. Such information is essential because heraldic rules or the entitlement to bear a coat- of-arms can vary from country to country. The presentation of a family coat-of-arms on eherold.org can be called on worldwide to safeguard the priority claim – regardless of the legal factors in the 193 countries in the world. The global announcement of the family coat-of-arms forms a basis alone for internationally documenting its priority.
For more than 45 years, the Wappen-Herold, Deutsche heraldische Gesellschaft e.V. in Germany has been working closely together with Pro Heraldica and also maintains close contacts with the International Academy of Genealogy, founded 1998 in Turin (Italy), and the International Acadamy of Heraldry (Académie Internationale d’Héraldique), founded 1949 in Paris. Both academies were established in order to bring together genealogists and heraldry experts from all over the world.
The objective of the genealogical academy is to promote and coordinate genealogical studies at an international level, to organize colloquia and to have genealogy recognized as a true discipline within the humanities worldwide.
The objective of the heraldic academy is to centralize heraldic studies on the basis of as much international cooperation as possible. You need to be elected to have a place in the Academy and the number of active academics is limited to 75. Dr. Rolf Sutter, Chairman of Wappen-Herold is a member of both academies.
