But probably one of the aspects of world building in George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is its extensive use of sigils and mottos to represent each noble house.
Heraldry in the Game of Thrones universe are used by nobility as an identification in the battlefield as well as symbols to signify status.
