No, but she took ideas from her background, home state and activism...here's a clip from a local NYC newspaper that outlined what the various colors and symbols mean - I think it's pretty neat!

From the NY POST:

“Her Royal Highness worked closely with the College of Arms throughout the design process to create a Coat of Arms that was both personal and representative,” the palace said about the LA native.

“The blue background of the shield represents the Pacific Ocean off the California coast, while the two golden rays across the shield are symbolic of the sunshine of The Duchess’s home state,” it added.

“The three quills represent communication and the power of words.”

Markle, a self-described feminist and former actress, chose to emblazon her coat of arms with a songbird, “with wings elevated as if flying and an open beak, which with the quill represents the power of communication.”

On the opposite side of the bird stands a lion that reperesents Harry.

Under the shield on the grass lies a collection of golden poppies – California’s state flower – and wintersweet, which grows at Kensington Palace.
