Shield division styles - meanings..?

Post by Kevin Wood » Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:50 pm


I have a question I had posted in another thread about something completely different, but I thought it might be better to post it here, in a more relevant section.

I am rather new to heraldry, have been trying to learn what I can and have been looking at several different coats of arms. I am actually working with a herald now to have a coat created for me, and I really like the idea of having a pall reversed (I think that's the name..?) division on the coat so that there are 3 different sections. But I am curious - are there any considerations or restrictions for using such a division?

And I am open to anyone's opinions on the topic as well - if you like or don't like them, and why or why not.

Thanks all...
