Design a Coat of Arms Competition

In medieval times, a coat of arms would tell people who you were and which family you were from, using pictures and decoration rather than words.

At the Henry VII Experience in Micklegate Bar, you can design your own family coat of arms and enter it into our monthly prize draw!

Your coat of arms could include:

  • Your favourite colours
  • Things that are important to you and your family
  • A family motto (you can make one up!)
  • Your favourite animals
