dragon wings (which are actually
bat wings) symbolize flexibility, adaptability and movement,
as bats are much more manoeuvrable in the air than birds.
The Gamelyon is tied to the Arthurian Legends, which ties
into the armigerís enjoyment of fantastic literature.
The Sword & Eagle Pommel : The
eagle represents and honours the armigerís ancestors and the
hilt and sword honour their struggle and survival through
migration, slavery and transition. It also honours the
numerous members of the family who served in the military
and survived wars.
There are five suns because the
number five symbolizes the Eons with the current eon being
the central larger one. The suns represent life, action and
energy. They also represent the immediate families of the
armiger and his wife Morina : one for each set of the
siblings, the armiger's parents and his wife being expressed
by the central sun.
The crest sword is pointed
downward as a representation of combat that has ended. It
was the armigerís desire to enter the military, but that
plan fell through. Also, once again, the Eagle is raised in
a position of honour.
Pennon - The raised pennon is a
personal admonition to continue developing my servant,
leadership and mediation styles. I am to do so with the
meanings of Vert and Argent, inter-mixed, in mind.
The badge represents a sword
ready for use, but only as a last resort. The dragon wings
embody flexibility and options. The stars mirror the
symbolism of the shield stars, while the eagle has also been
described on both the shield and the crest.
