The Greyhound is said to denote majesty, courage, vigilance, swiftness and loyalty, and they were emblematic of nobility. Greyhounds are one of the oldest breeds of dogs, and appear in art and literature throughout history. The breed was developed nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt. Known in England before the 9th century, the Greyhound was bred and raised by the aristocracy. For 700 years it was illegal under English law for a commoner to own a Greyhound.
In heraldry, greyhounds symbolize courage, vigilance, and loyalty.
