Ecclesistical office heraldry also belongs to my heraldic offer. The Roman Catholic church has developed for her dignitaries certain, always constant heraldic rank badge who consist of the typical headgears (tiare, mitre, prelate's hat) and other ecclesiastical attributes (crooks, talk crosses, pallium etc.). In detail the following order arises according to the ecclesiastical laws

1. The coat of arms sign of pope is accompanied by the tiare, a triply crowned white cap concluded by a cross and two keys (gold and silver) which are mostly connected by a red cord and are crossed about or behind the sign. The golden key points after (heraldically) on the top right. (Remark of the author: Because the tiare are not carried any more, pope Benedikt XVI. than the first pope leads a mitre and the pallium in the coat of arms.)

2. The shield cardinals becomes by a red prelate's hat with 15 red on both sides, in five rows (1:2:3:4:5) to arranged tassels calls. If the concerning cardinal is at the same time an archbishop or bishop, a double or easy talk cross whose shaft should be visible under the sign stands behind the sign

3. The shield patriarchs is accompanied by a green prelate's hat with 15 green tassels arranged in five rows and stands before a golden double sharp.

4. The shield archbishops is marked by a green prelate's hat with 10 (1:2:3:4) green tassels on both sides and stands before a golden double sharp.

5. The shield bishops is accompanied by a green prelate's hat with 6 (1:2:3) green tassels on both sides and stands before an easy golden cross. All prelates who own the bishop's dignity can also use the mitre, a 2 pointed silver cap decorated with golden embroideries with two pendulous tapes, and the crosier to the sign. In newer time this happens less and less.
abbots nullius and prelates nullius by what free abbots and prelates with episcopal jurisdiction, but without bishop's inauguration are understood. also lead the green prelate's hat, like the bishops, but not the talk cross. Instead, they can use mitre and crook as other signs of her dignity together with the prelate's hat.

6. The coat of arms abbots and provosts is banked by a black hat with 6 (1:2:3) black tassels on both sides. Instead of the episcopal cross they can put behind the shield the crook with velum and also use the mitre as a timbre. They can also use mitre and crook without hat.

7. The coat of arms apostolic protonotares (juridical officials of the Curia) is banked by a violet hat with 6 red tassels on both sides, without mitre, stick or cross.
