View Full Version : Free Heraldry Clipart

I saw this Web site mentioned at EN World today:


It's an extensive collection of clipart that can be used for creating heraldry, coats of arms, or just for map decoration. And since the March 2008 Cartographer's Annual for CC3 (http://sub.profantasy.com/2008/march08.html) re-introduces the heraldry-making tools to the program, I thought it might be of interest.

You're duly repped ;)

Superb find, jaerdaph! I can see this resource as being very well used!

Thanks! :)

It passed my test when I found a GIF of a heron there. I've been searching a long time for a suitable heron to use to make the Aherne family crest in CC3 (my mother is an Aherne from Kinsale in County Cork, Ireland)!

There's only one thing I hate about the clipart link.





Seriously, even a font library allows me to look at all fonts beginning with Q, this one I need to page through until I reach the Q's (just using as an example).

Other than that, it is very nice.

Oh, and If I am missing the 'searchable' part, please let me know, cause I looked :(

Yeah, that is annoying, but you can do a Google search with this format:

Great link! I've been designing various heraldry/shields in my AD&D game and this would be perfect for that. Another resource I've used to find some copyright free heraldry/shields is the Mayflower Search Engine (http://tools.wikimedia.de/~tangotango/mayflower/). Search for heraldry for some interesting images (not all of them are copyright free but there are certainly some interesting pics).

I just wanted to add that the Heraldry clipart Web site is actually referenced in the March 2008 Cartographer's Annual PDF guide. I must have missed that the first time I read it... :oops:

Turgenev, thanks for the link. :)
