It's a rough use of the term. In medieval times, knights and noblemen decorated their shields with family crests and personal symbols. Different animals meant different things; lions meaning courageous, turtles meaning impenetrable defense, doves meaning peaceful.
So I thought that since Minecraft is sort of based off the middle ages, I would just throw together a silly little thing. Crests are made up of four blocks of wool, such as:
The meaning of each color is based off of way you get the dyes needed and who difficult it is to make them. Blue, because it's a rare ore found in the earth, means Great Miner. Bonemeal, coming from skeletons, generally means fighter (Although it's still easy to get at sunrise.)

Light Blue - Great Warrior
Bonemeal from skeletons, in combination for sitting in mines long enough to get lapis lazuli.

Purple - Cultured

Black - Aggressive
What kind of ass kills poor little squids, and holds their breath that long?
Light Grey - Hunter
Skeleton bones and dead squids means you've been attacking something.
Grey - Wild
Because you need something to show your wild.
White - Ordinary
What else is it gonna be? You gotta punch a sheep to get this.
Excuse my humor, it's pretty bad. Conclusions are hard to do.
