Kryszpin - is a Polish Coat of Arms. It was used by several szlachta families in the times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

History[edit]

The exact story behind this coat of arms is unknown. Both its blazoning and the features used are probably of foreign origin and were naturalised in Polish heraldry sometime in the 16th century, probably of German origin. It is somehow related to the Nieczuja coat of arms.

Blazon[edit]

Parted per pale, or and azure, in dexter two deer heads couped argent, in sinister lion passant argent. Both divided by a tree rump brunâtre.

Out of a crest coronet, between two vols, peacock's feathers.
