Arms:  Per chevron inverted enhanced Azure and Argent, a pale between two mullets of six pierced all Azure, in chief a lion rampant Argent.

Motto:  Negotio Utilitatis Militabat (He campaigned in a situation of advantage.)

Design Rationale:

The design takes elements from various portions of the armiger’s background, the Argent in the designs, as well as the lion rampant, reflect his historical connection to Bulgaria, the country of his birth.
