Blazon

* The following blazon and/or emblazonment are certified by the armiger to be his/her original (or inherited) lawful property.

  • Arms: Argent, a saltire between three wolf’s heads erased and a Phrygian cap gules.
  • Crest: A portcullis chained argent, semée of ones and zeros sable.
  • Motto: Omnia Possum

The armiger chose the elements present for very specific reasons. First is the St. Patrick’s cross. This represents Alabama, the state that has been home to the armiger's family for longer than it has been a state. All of my Blevins ancestors from John Blevins, who moved there in the 1800s are all buried within a 75-mile radius of the armiger's home. The armiger feel it is appropriate to make use of the Alabama flag as a part of his arms.

Next are the three wolf's heads. The surname Blevins is derived from a Welsh word that roughly meant wolf cub, or son of Wolf (Blaidd-yn). The wolf’s heads are a cant of that name, and represent both the armiger's two siblings and himself, and his own three children.

Finally is the Phrygian, or Liberty cap. It represents both the freedom the armiger holds so dearly as an American, and his military service. It is a prominent component of the seal of the Department of the Army.
