Heraldry Society, sponsored by The Armorial Register Limited,
publishers of The International Register of Arms, was formed on the
10th June 2013.
One of the primary
aims of The International Heraldry Society is to allow those
proficient in the art and science of heraldry help educate and guide
those less knowledgeable in the design and creation of arms and
their correct use.
It is not at all
necessary to possess a coat of arms to join the Society but many
members are either armigerous or intend to assume or petition for a
Grant or Matriculation of Arms. Members are of all ages and
scattered around the world, the members are interested in all
aspects of armory, some being actively and professionally engaged in
heraldic arts and crafts and in academic research.
Membership of The
International Heraldry Society is free of charge and open to all.
The base field of the shield is Vert for all lands
practicing heraldry. The shield Argent as a common symbol for
heralds with the compass rose over all symbolizing the international
nature of heraldry which can travel in many
directions (figuratively and actually).
The armillary sphere in crest represents
the "loftier" goals and roles of heraldry throughout it's
history and into modern times.
The motto was chosen to indicate that armorial bearings, regardless
of their origin, are used by right.
