Neither their arms nor their words appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they blazon their shield as an iron escutcheon with silver studs on a grey-green field strewn with longships proper.[2]


During the Dance of the Dragons, Lord Grimm declared Greyshield for the blacks.[3][4]
