Peter Alan Harris

Registered: The International Register of Arms, 1st July 2021. Registration No. 0604 (Vol.4).

Arms: Or, a Dairy Cow passant Proper, on a chief wavy Azure, three cubit arms in armour erect each holding a scroll Argent, the hands Proper.

Crest: On a grassy mound Vert, a hedgehog rampant Gules impaling grapes Or.

Motto: Fiducia Integritas Tenacitas.

Assumed: 2017 New Zealand, 30th June 2021.

Designed and emblazoned by The Armorial Register Limited.

The design incorporates several elements dear to the armiger; the wavy division of the field with a blue chief represents water and an interest in sailing, the cow is an obvious reference to dairy farming, and the three arms in armour each holding a scroll, represent insurance contracts and a triple level of protection.

The crest is, of course, a hedgehog, or urchin, which is also known, in heraldry, as a herisson, or herezon in the canting arms of some families of Harris; here it is standing upon a green grassy mound set to remind the armiger of his Irish heritage. As a further reminder of a farmerís desire to provide plentiful food, the rampant hedgehog carries the grapes to provide for its offspring. Medieval legend held that hedgehogs would creep into vineyards at night, shake grapes loose, then roll about to impale the fallen fruit before carrying their bounty home for their offspring.

The motto, Fiducia Integritatis Tenacitas, can be translated as Trust Integrity Tenacity.
