For Huck, I think that you would need to put the raft. It would be a symbol of how he grows up and becomes more aware of Jim's humanity. I think that you might also put the dead pig that he uses to fake his death. That could symbolize the way in which he rejected society's idea of who should have authority over him. These two things could symbolize how he rejects society's ideas about race and authority and how he comes to be his own person following his own conscience.

Huckleberry Finn is a story of self discovery and humanity. When I think of A Coat of Arms for Huck and Jim I see a river flanked by the profiles of a white boy on one side and a black man on the other. Both individuals are reaching across the river with one arm extended, their hands ready to clasp together. Perhaps a rising sun in the background, or a depiction of a horizon. I think the colors should depict a white boy and a black man, a muddy brown Mississippi River, and either a bright orange-yellow rising sun or a blue-white horizon.
