Heraldic symbols

I love things like this, I spotted this at u of t. They are a short hand that is meant to communicate so much.

Maybe they are so great now that we have lost so much of the meaning of the symbols and they are just viewed stylistically.

I was looking at St. Malo's coat of arms, it's like a ermine or ferret w a swishy neck scarf! Awesome.
