      From the bit I've read about Polish heraldry, they go to even less
      trouble then the Germans. A coat of arms belonged to an entire clan,
      not an individual person. Rather like how modern persons think
      it's "their" coat of arms because they share the surname. Interesting
      stuff huh?
