Crest and Flag

In the 14th Century, the practice of embroidering the Family Crest on the surcoat worn over the coat of mail gave rise to the term “Coat of Arms”. The Chesley Brown Coat of Arms is original to Chesley Brown. It is based on the Garrard Family Crest because of family heritage and inspiration of quality and education. The fleur de lis comes from the Brown Family Crest. The name Chesley is a family name of old English Origin.
