The Heraldic Dictionary Interesting description of the building blocks of heraldic crests. See also International Civic Arms for your hometown's / home canton's own.
"Through careful observation of the snobby elite, I discovered that you don't have to be healthy, wealthy, or wise to engage in the sort of action and adventure that equates your name with international prestige.

its nice to see my alma mater linked to.
