  • Registration Date: 27 January 2019
  • Armiger: Judah David Powers of New York, NY, USA

* The following blazon and/or emblazonment are hereby Certified by the armiger listed, to be his/her original (or inherited/matriculated) Arms.

Category: American Armigers

Arms as interpreted by Allen Crawford


Arms:  Vert, a lion rampant Argent armed, langued, and crowned Or, holding a torch Bleu Celeste enflamed Or. In dexter a gore Argent.

Crest:  A bald eagle proper holding the Two Tablets Argent.

Motto:  Veniam, Videbo, Vincam

Design Rationale:

The lion represents the armiger's name, Judah, while his golden tongue represents their chosen career, which requires smooth talking. The crown represents their middle name, David, their chosen career again, and belief in monarchism. The torch, representing Lady Liberty's torch, stands for the armiger's love of Truth, Justice, and the American Way, their beloved City of New York, and their blazing a new path for themselves and their descendants. At dexter, the gore represents a sense of brokenness and the way that completes who they are, while also representing a turning page, washing away what has passed and starting anew.

The crest represents the armiger's intertwined identities, as an American (bald eagle) and as a Jew (Two Tablets). The motto, a future version of Caesar's famous quote, speaks of their plans for the future, and the ring and knot below refers to their strong background in Scouting and their belief in the values Scouts espouses.
