Does the Dϋsing Family have a Family Crest or Coat of Arrms?
Answer: Unfortunately no. So why not? Well, one must first understand how family crests or coat of arms were used and how they originated. A family crest and coat of arms are pretty much the same thing. In Germany, a family crest or coat of arms is called a Wappen.They were not always used and were primarily used by nobility and assigned by nobility. The Dϋsings were farmers and farmers usually did not have family crests or coat of arms. Additionally when one was used, it was specific to one person in particular. They were not usually assigned to an entire group of people or a family. Often the components of the family crest or coats of arms have a particular meaning and will reflect or reveal something very specicifc to that one indiviual. Furthermore it is improper to just adopt or assume the Family Crest or Coat of Arms of another as again if they are used they are intended to reflect one individual in particular.
