The Arms of Adam Kym Pittaway

The lion rampant represents strength, courage and the armiger's Anglo Saxon heritage while also honouring his Dutch roots. The compass represents the armiger's love of travel and adventure. As well as his belief in the cardinal directions represented in four of the five elements: North (earth), East (air), South (fire), and West (water). Surviving Neolithic sites such as Stonehenge have clear astronomical connections relating to the seasons and the cardinal points. North stands for Infinite Possibility, South for the eternal present of Now, West for the Past, and East looking to the future.

The two stars in the arms were designed to represent the seven-pointed star of the armiger's Australian identity and honours his ancestral spirits and other forebears. The seven-pointed star gained importance in heraldry after the end of the Middle Ages and is also known as a heptagram, Fairy or Elven Star.
Gold (Or) here illustrates the armiger's beliefs in masculine energy, creativity, perfection, and success. In heraldry, it represents generosity, virtue, obedience, respect, glory, faith, gentility, constancy, and understanding, wisdom or elevation of the mind. It is the heraldic companion of silver. It is associated with the metal gold, the gemstone topaz, and the Sun.

Black (Sable) stands for the armiger's belief in its ability to repel and banish evil and negativity, and its ability to bring protection. It also represents resistance, constancy, authority, wisdom, and prudence. In heraldic shields, the colour was originally made from the black fur of the sable, a species of martin. It also has associations with the herb nightshade, the planet Saturn, and the gemstone diamond. It is one of the most ancient colours used in art. Carrying something black can be used to absorb and neutralize negative energy
