Salut Phillipe

I did a quick translation for you. And to assist in my critique:

"Arms, coat of arms, blazon, shield, Crest... So many words that often seem rigorously interchangeable, and that many people – including some historians – use to refer to the same things.

It is a mistake; Each of these terms (with the exception of the words Arms and arms, synonyms) covers a different heraldic reality.

Weapons: In heraldry, synonymous with arms;

Coat of arms: they are emblems in colour, peculiar to a family, a community or, more rarely, to an individual, and subject in their layout and form to special rules, which are those of the coat of arms;

Blazon: All the distinctive signs and emblems of a noble family, of a community;

Crest: Small figure in the form of a shield placed in certain coats of arms;

ECU: The ECU is a demarcated surface, on which the coat of arms is placed. It can have variable shapes, the most common (but not the only one) being a isosceles triangle, pointing downwards, and whose two equal sides are convex. The latter form, itself of varying proportions, is known as the classical ECU."

A superb montage illustrating the differences in each of these terms. Good sharpess and the colorful red flowers in the lower image add life. Tfs!
