My reconstruction of the Paffrath family coat of arms from Germany, which was created in the year 1402.
It was a difficult task. It was a typical reconstruction of the family coat of arms, but the notes and sketches about the Paffrath coat of arms were not very clear. There were 3 examples from which I have chosen the one at the top of the document and I have tried to be as precise as possible in the coat of arms recreation. Unfortunately, the mantling part was completely illegible so I had to improvise. And apart of this, we have:
- a red chevron
- three red roses
At first, the roses were entirely red, but the client requested a small change: to add more white. Also, I usually don’t use silver in my coat of arms, I use grey, but the customer insisted that I had to use a gradient that simulates silver in vector graphics.

You can send me an email using the contact form there, describing what coat of arms would you like me to design for you. Also, you can click on the “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; a 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.
