Koehler coat of arms

Koehler coat of arms

Rietstap's Armorial General gives the Koehler blazon as:

D'azur, à trois étoiles d'or, 2 et 1, les deux du chef à six rais et celle en pointe à huit rais, à la champagne d'or, ch. d'une croix pattée d'azur. Casque couronné.

What is the English translation of this? What is the proper way to give this blazon?

An equivalent English blazon might be:

Azure, two mullets of six points and one mullet of eight points Or, two and one, a base Or charged with a cross patty Azure.

I have attached a scan of this coat of arms from Rolland and Rolland's Illustrations to the Armorial-Général.

The "casque coronné" (crowned helmet) simply describes the helm which would sit atop the shield.

I hope that all of this is helpful to you.

A slight incorrectness in your statement - it should read 'A Koehler blazon', not 'The Koehler blazon'.
