Not as commonly used as in the west, some symbols / coat of arms have been connected with Byzantine noble families over the time, especially after 1261.

Byzantium - glory, commitment, burden
"It was the eternal scene of mankind - the minions of violence, the victim and forever the third, the spectator, who does not raise his hands, does not defend the victim, does not try to free him, because he fears for his own savety and whose own savety is therefore threatened forever." Remarque
