The Imperial Seal is used by members of the Japanese Imperial family. Under the Meiji constitution, no one was permitted to use the Imperial Seal except the Emperor of Japan, so each member of the Imperial family used a slightly modified version of the seal. Shinto shrines related to the Imperial family also use the relevant modified versions of the Imperial Seal as their seals, and some other Shinto shrines are not related to the Imperial family but are also permitted to use the chrysanthemum as a part of their seal. 上諭 - The Emperors words 上諭 - The Emperors words 御名御璽 - Imperial Signature and Seal 本文 - text The Constitution of the Empire of Japan(大日本帝國憲法), more commonly known as the Imperial or Meiji Constitution, was the fundamental law of the Empire of Japan from 1889 until 1947. ...

Coats of arms have their origins in the designs used by medieval knights to make their armour and shield stand out in battle or tournaments and enable quick recognition by allies or spectators.
