Category: American Armigers

 

Blazon:

Arms:  Per Bend Or and Argent on a Bend Gules three Eagles displayed upright quarterly Or and Sable.

Crest:  On a torse Or and Gukes rising from an Eastern Crown Or a double-headed Eagle displayed wings in lure Argent armed Or langued Gules.

Motto:  Lucem Amat Virtus (Virtue loves light)

Design Rationale:

The Or and Argent are reminiscent of the Vatican's CoA and serve to show that my family has Roman Catholic roots. The Gules is to show military service, which I am the third generation of my family to have served in the military. The Eagles represent that my family dates back to the Roman empire - their colors are to show loyalty to Church and Country during extreme grief - three to show that I am a third generation Italian-American.

The Eastern crown on the crest is to show that one part of my family came from southern Italy, which had ties to the Byzantine Empire, while the double-headed Eagle is to show that my family has gone East in that we converted to the Orthodox faith - so a meshing of East and West.
