Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


1341 gathering of prince-electors from the constituent states of the Holy Roman Empire. The use of heraldry as a means to identify geographical entities is a centuries-old tradition, preceding flags.

This template facilitates the use of heraldry as a means to simply and orderly illustrate armigers (e.g. countries, regions, cities, persons or organisations) in lists. The omission of all elements of achievement save the quintessential escutcheon is a conventional heraldic practice that provides a meaningful degree of uniformity, and ensures the distinctiveness of the motifs even at low resolutions (20 pixels is the default width).

I.e. e.g. {{Coat of arms|Belgium}} produces Royal Arms of Belgium.svg instead of more elaborate variants such as Great coat of arms of Belgium.svg, State Coat of Arms of Belgium.svg or Arms of Belgium (with crown).svg.
