Family crest I designed for the Vanhinberg family from Germany

This is a custom crest created in a digital painting technique with main colours red and white but also hing of green. The Vanhinberg is an old German family with long hunting tradition and this is why we can see Saint Hubertus or Hubert (c. 656 – 30 May 727) in the crest. He was a Christian saint who became the first bishop of Liège in 708 AD. He was the patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians, and metalworkers. On the shield we can see:

  • a hunter with his dog
  • horn, deer horns and a dagger
  • a red oak tree
  • falconer gloves with falcon

Two hunting dogs as supporters: greyhounds in this case.

You can send me an email using the contact form there, describing what coat of arms would you like me design for you. Also, you can click on “Prices” link in the same menu to read more about symbolic elements used in heraldry. Every element in the coat of arms should have its meaning. For example “a spade” a tool of agriculture; symbol of honest labour. “Jasmine”: signifies hope, joy and a demonstration of attachment. Please note, that there is no such thing as a ‘coat of arms for a surname’. Many people of the same surname will often be entitled to completely different coats of arms. A family crest belongs to individuals.
