Did I miss something, or is there currently no discussion board specifically for heraldry?

I'm trying to figure out a thing or two about "reading" heraldry. I know they used funky names for colors and shapes, and a lot of the designs mean something, or pertain to a specific person. I wish I knew how I could figure out these things... because I see heraldry all the time in movies, and I'd like to be able to tell whether it meant anything at all, or was just some fake design.

Hello Steve, take a look at http://digiserve.com/heraldry/symbols.htm

It should get you started.

Very interesting indeed.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but maybe I don't know what I'm really looking for anyway.

I suppose some of these designs came in, and out of favor with the times.

All times are PT (US)
