About Coat of Arms Maker

Historians, Roleplayers, IT Teachers, and Tattoo Artists

Hundreds of people use CoaMaker everyday to design family crests. Teachers use it for history and IT classes. Fantasy and rpg players of all kinds create stuff for their characters. Artists create coat of arms mockups and templates for medieval tattoos. And fans of worldbuilding and vexillology make flags, emblems, and blazons of every sort. We are proud that such a diverse crowd loves CoaMaker since we have launched in the beginning of 2021. 

Over time, we have added hundreds of carefully selected, designed, and adjusted shields and charges to our heraldry tool. We are constantly adding more elements and functions to our coat of arms generator. For PRO users we promise at least eight new items every month—but actually we add much more because we love heraldry and the heraldic achievement you design.

The Story behind CoaMaker

Since I was a kid, I have been fascinated by coats of arms and heraldry in general. My fascination intensified over the years as I started playing fantasy games like The Dark Eye (Das Schwarze Auge) and Warhammer–and when I was studying history.

Unfortunately, my skills with pen and paper have never been the best. Thus, I soon started to trace coats of arms by hand. I took two chairs, put a glass door of my sideboard between them and a bright lamp underneath. The pre-LED lamp turned super hot after a short time, but I could assemble all the heraldic elements I wanted to combine.

Fortunately, over the years I have discovered that I have some talent for programming and for vector graphics. The result is the coat of arms generator you find on this site – and which you can use for free (without disassembling your sideboard). You can choose whatever shields, charges, and colors you like and build your very own custom coat of arms.

Without further ado: Please try the blazon generator. If you like it, share your creations, don’t forget to tag or link this website, and spread the word. I am super excited about what you will create!

Have fun,


Sven, creator of CoaMaker
