The Arms of Dr. Glenn Jørstad Jakobsen

The armiger has assumed burgher arms as was the tradition in his ancestral land of Norway. Owing to the scarcity of nobility and its abolition by parliament in 1821, the majority of arms found in Norway are burgher arms. Historic examples of arms in Northern Scandinavia are notable for simplicity of design. The charges contained within the field allude to the armiger's ancestry and represent the following:

The chevron visually resembles a mountain, separating sea and sky. It also represents an arrow admonishing us to learn, grow, and reach ever higher during our life journey.

North Star: Stella Polaris was used by early seafarers before the invention of the sextant or other means of navigation. Here its reference is twofold. First, as a Viking navigation aid, and second, as that moral, spiritual, and intellectual light that guides us in our lives.

The ship: The Viking ship is an obvious allusion to the armiger's ancestry, but also the voyage we are all on in our lives.

The three lozenges represent not only the armiger's three children, but also allude to the Norn of Norse mythology. The Norn are the three fates: past, present and future. A parallel meaning is the biblical reference of Faith, Hope, and Love.

The Crest represents the folly of life based on edifices and possessions. The castle representing strength can nevertheless be destroyed. Through destruction of the material, a new life of enlightenment rises as the phoenix. The second allusion is to a shared Asian ancestry of the armigers children.
