Actually the term is 'Coat of Arms' originating in Medieval times to identify Knights (who wore armour in tournaments and contests) Knights were more-or-less the Medieval version of mercenaries or private soldiers with allegiances to powerful landowners. With the advent and rise of organised military and modern weapons, Knights became obsolete, so their heraldry morphed into 'Gentlemen'.
