Heraldry is the auxiliary historical science that deals with the origins, development and craftsmanship of coats of arms. The earliest known emblems appear 1130 and went into use almost simultaneously in France, Germany and England. When implementing the coats of arms were required to keep the heraldic rules that applied depending on vremneu simplicity and use of the coat of arms. Croatia, the use of the coat of arms spread from Hungary in the early 13th century when the arms appear on seals documents. In the second half of the 13th century castles in Repulic of Croatia had on its stamps the most common images of saints - the patron saint. While the emblems of secular territories were associated with coats of arms of their ruling dynasties, church dignitaries have formed their coats of arms differently, according to special rules. Zagreb Archdiocese is one of the key policy institutions of the city. For centuries the diocese until the mid-19th century were not included in the archdiocese. Zagreb Cathedral is one of the symbolism of the Archdiocese and of the city and represents an interesting topic for discussion heraldic heritage, which is engaged in this work.
