I was wondering if one of you guys would make a flag out of my surename family crest or coat of arms.I was bored and started searching for the history of my last name,Armstrong.Seems my forefathers are from Scottland.Ni and Grind are my brothers! Hehe...anyway...I thought it would be neat if somebody could make a TM flag out of my crest or coat of arms and I could bear it at DDM's or something.I'm trying to find a good picture of my crest that dosen't cost any money to see
Very interesting stuff.Seems the name was given to a knight who hoisted the king onto his horse with one arm,after the king's horse was killed and the enemy was ready to strike him dead.Then was was a whole Braveheart type thing when the Armstrong's controlled Southern Scottland and fought the King of England for control.The knight was captured under a flase banner of truce and before he was hung he said to the king,"I am but a fool to seek grace at a graceless face, but had I
known you would have taken me this day, I would have lived in the Borders despite King Harry and you both" then he said "freeeedddommmm!" or "I only regret I have one life to give...." hehe jk.

Got it Kevlar.Thanks

Maybe some other people want to search and find out what their coat of arms looks like?I just went to some search engines and searched for"armstrong family crest" and got tons of returns.Maybe you'll also find out what you forefathers have done.My cousin Neil walked on the moon

heh, I already have my coat of arms in the game(well mostly, didn't feel like adding 3 scallops shells) by in large CoA are naturals for battle flags and are fairly easy to make(once you figure out the lingo, lion rampant(gold) on field (green)with 3 esscallops(gold)) since they use a rather limited color set
