King Richard I often carried shields and colors into battle with his English armies that included one or two lions. The lion had been used by his father, King Henry II, in heraldic shields as well as other previous Saxon and Danish kings to rule over portions of England. Richard I eventually adopted a design that featured a field of red with three golden lions in the passant guardant pose as his coat of arms. This became the first officially recognized Royal Arms of England. It is still used in the arms to this day.
