Royal Coat of Arms Investigation Questions
What does the lion represent? Why would the rulers of England include so many of them on the Coat of Arms? The lion represents royalty, majesty, power, strength, bravery, courage, and ferocity. The rulers included so many of them because they represent three areas England, Norway, and Aquitaine which were associated with the British crown. What does the fleur-de-lis represent? Why is it featured on the Coat of Arms of British rulers? The fleur-de-lis represents France. It is featured on the Coat of arms of British rulers because the British had an alliance with the French, so they had the fleur-de-lis on their coat of arms. Why is the Irish harp featured on the Coat of Arms?

The Irish harp represents Irelands place in the UK.
What does the unicorn represent? Why would the rulers of England choose a unicorn to support their shield? It was a Scottish symbol and they wanted to show that they had conquered and ruled Scotland. Why does the unicorn have a chain around its neck?

The unicorn has a chain around its neck because it considered to be an untamed beast. The Coat of Arms includes two phrases, “Blessed are the peacemakers” and “Shame to him who evil thinks.” Choose one of these phrases and explain why a ruler might want it included in a coat of arms. I think that the main reason why “Blessed are the peacemakers” is because he is trying to say that the safety of his kingdom is very important to him and peace is the number one issue. Research one of the colors featured in the Coat of Arms. Based on what the color represents, explain why it would be used in a royal coat of arms. I chose to research the color gold. I found out gold represents generosity and elevation of the mind. I think this color is used in Coat of arms because every ruler needs to be generous and they also need a elevated mind. You may wish to consult some of these sources in your research or you can do some further investigation of your own. Just make sure to credit any source you use with a citation. Sources:
