How to use "Heraldry" in context?

Heraldry, the study of coats of arms and flags, may be considered the foundation of modern heraldry. It began as a practical art related to warfare, but over time developed into a symbol-based system of social communication. The practice of heraldry has been associated with nobility since the Middle Ages, and the design and display of arms is one of the primary indications of a person's social status.

Today, heraldry is used by individuals, families, organizations, and countries to identify their affiliation, often in a symbolic form. The complex and intricate symbolism found in coats of arms can be traced to its origins in classical mythology and Christianity.
