Arms as interpreted by Dimitri Prica


Arms:  Azure, a chevron burst Argent between in chief three bees in fess proper and in base a beehive Or.

Crest:  The Sun in His Splendor Or.

Mantling  Azure doubled Argent.

Motto:  Organize Yourselves

Slogan:  Break Through!

Badge:  On a hurt fimbriated Argent en soleil a hive Or and three bees proper in chief.

Design Rationale:

The arms visually relate to a critical moment when the armiger accidentally stepped on a yellow jacket hive as a child and learned (painfully) about the power a large group of small critters can have when sufficiently roused to action. The three bees represent his three children, three university degrees, and three work places. The burst chevron represents the armiger as a builder (of minds) as a teacher and as a reminder to stay humble. The beehive is the traditional symbol of his ancestors' homelands. The overall tinctures represent at least one color from each of the universities where he has worked.
