Blazon

Cross patte urde Gules.png
Arms of The Independent Order of Kingdom Knights

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

  • Arms: Parted per pale Argent and Sable, a cross pattée urdée Gules as the same is also in the margin hereof more plainly depicted.
  • Crest: Rays Gules issuing from a rising phoenix Argent.
  • Motto: Non ministrari, sed ministrare (not to be served, but to serve)

Design Rationale

The shield is divided vertically (parted per pale), white (argent) on the wearer’s right (the dexter side) which is a place of honor. The white represents light, goodness and morality. The black (sable) on the wearer’s left (the sinister side) represents darkness, sin and immorality. The red cross (Cross of Virtues) has twelve points alluding to the Laws and Virtues of the Order, and to the twelve precepts in the Apostle’s creed. Its red (gules) color serves as a reminder of the sacrifice of Christ, and the mortality of man. The cross spans the black and white reminding us that our path from darkness to light is through Christ.

The Crest is a depiction of red rays issuing from a white phoenix, representing the Light issuing forth from the resurrection of Christ as well as the rebirth of Christian chivalry and its virtues shining in a dark world.

The motto, "Non venimus ministrari, sed ministrare" reminds us that we are not to be served but to serve others.
