Blazon:

Arms:  Sanguine on a Fess Or a Closet compony Argent and Sable in chief four Fusils in fess Or.

Crest:  From a Torse Or and Sanguine on a Grassy Mound Vert in front of six Arrows interlaced in saltire points upwards a coiled Rattlesnake about to strike all proper.

Motto:  Incepto Ne Desistam (May I not Shrink from my Purpose)

Design Rationale:

The crest was inspired by a symbol in an emblem book because my last name, McAtee, means son of a "wise one" and snakes are emblematic of wisdom or cunning. The colors on the shield are one of my favorite color combinations. The four lozenges on the shield represent four years I spent living in Mexico. I work in information technology, so the black and white band in the center, represent a line of code (software). The motto is a quote from the Aeneid, one of my favorite classics.

Other Registration(s):

  • The International Association of Amateur Heralds under McAtee.
