The Arms of Menkerios Andemicael

The Vert represents the ancestral agrarian roots of the armiger’s grandfather's line, who farmed the same lands in east Africa for over 400 years. The Or represents the life-giving sun shining over fields.

The bee quite literally represents his grandfather's lifelong beekeeping, starting with a hive he found at the age of thirteen. The honey from these hives kept the family nourished and comfortable during lean times. In this sense, it also represents dedication and industriousness.

The rose represents Lutheranism, which the armiger’s grandfather converted to from coptic christianity, against many obstacles. He became a reverend and baptized many members of the family. It also suggests a devotion to cultivating beauty and perfection through dedication and labour, as the bee pollinates the flower and helps it grow.

Finally, the Èpiné division between land and sky, bee and flower, suggests literally the thorns of the Acacia, a native and ubiquitous plant in Eritrea, his Grandfather's home country. Figuratively, it represents the obstacles that must be crossed to achieve goals.

Épiné is a custom armorial division created by the Armiger.
