Here are some pages for anyone who has ever, like me, wondered how to interpret heraldic blazons and tincture. It's fascinating to me that the blazon, or verbal description of a coat-of-arms, is considered to be more official than the pictoral rendition. Makes sense, since everyone was illiterate and it was much easier to distribute verbal descriptions than books of illustrations. Yet another profession eliminated by technology!
