F.A.Q. AND SAMPLES OF DOCUMENTS
1. What services are provided worldwide by the Russian College of Heraldry?
The International Department of this College is directed to fulfil the following:
2. Who may apply for Armorial Bearings (Coat of Arms)?
The heraldic services of the CHR are available worldwide to all persons of honour.
You will request the assistance of the CHR to create a personally meaningful design in the artistic traditions of heraldry. This will receive the personal attention of the Principal Herald Master, who will require a sketch, a picture or a description of your proposed armorial bearings, or at least some basic ideas regarding the future coat of arms.
A brief resumé and a passport photograph
will be requested for the armiger`s records (the latter is desirable
but not compulsory). Then a line drawing of your coat of arms will be executed and sent for
your approval, after which the Library Painting, your Diploma Armorum and
all the other items will be produced and dispatched by the registered
air mail parcel to your address.
When your commission is accepted, payment should then be made, and work
on your Coat of Arms will commence. The cost of the services depends
on the complexity of the composition of the Armorial Bearings involved, i.e. whether the Arms are augmented
with the inclusion of supporters, or not, etc. The method of payment will be advised by the CHR Staff.
