Heraldry: 1. The study or art of tracing genealogies, of determining, designing, and granting coats of arms, and of ruling on questions of rank or protocol. 2. Armorial ensigns or devices.

The bottom line: This developed out of the basic need for a bunch of men dressed up in metal suits to distinguish themselves. They wore decorative "coats" over the armor. Find out more in our article, Understanding the Basics.
