Question by Halus: Spot of medieval heraldry other than the knight’s shield?
It was also observed on the knight’s surcoat and the horse’s caparison (ornamental cloth covering). My problem is, what time period did this start to seem/grow to be the standard, or was it a lot more to do with the knight’s prosperity or place in modern society that determined this?

Yeah, you are right. It became about wealth and place.
My favored was the indicator that defined whether or not the knight was a bastard.
