The Arms of Frank Richard Greg

The surname "Gregg" means "watchful". The design of the shield reflects the prayer in Psalms 141 utilizing the concept of watchfulness, requesting the Lord make us perfect by watching the doors of our mouth (Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep a watch over the door of my lips.) The portcullis is a heavy metal gate which guards the door of a castle. The one who guards the gate is Christ. His symbol, the cross, appears above it. The blue background is taken from the shield of the armiger's home state of New Jersey, while the Yorkshire Rose symbolizes the armigerís ancestral descent from Yorkshire, England.

The armiger's motto is "Give Glory To The Lord". The Crest is a golden eagle, symbolizing strength, courage, farsightedness and immortality. The golden eagle is holding a branch of almond which has anciently been regarded as a symbol of spring and the idea of watchfulness. As the armiger is a businessman, the helmet is a "tilting helmet", the "business" helmet of mounted warriors.

The armigerís ancestors include knights and Lords of several manors in Yorkshire as well as American ancestors who served in the American Revolution, War of 1812, the Union Army in the US Civil War and WW II.

Mr. Gregg is married to Robin L. Gregg and they have two children Marcy K. Gregg and Benjamin R. Gregg. He has varied business interests and is a Vice-President for an international reinsurer.

He is also an accomplished musician, a patron of the arts and various charities, a delegate of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and an Esquire of The Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem.
