The following family values should be incorporated into the coat of arms, in order of importance: persistence, deep roots, open minded, innovative/creative, family bond, arrogance, entrepreneurship, leadership.
In attachment I have put 3 examples of coat of arms that we like.
We are looking for a very figurative 'old fashioned' way of designing a coat of arms.
As if it has been designed ages ago.
If you would ask me how I would design it, it would have the following structure:
-Two lions at the side, always nice ;-)
-Above the shield a symbol of 'persistence', under the shield the deep roots (for instance tree roots)
-In the shield our four extra symbols: open minded, innovative/creative, family bond and arrogance. Important is that we see arrogance as being able to express whatever you feel in a certain situation, not the arrogance that you are better than somebody else.
-The element of entrepreneurship/leadership can be symbolized in the way these elements are all connected to eachother or put in the middle of the shield as you see in example 2 in attachment.
-There is no need for a banner with text
Any questions? Let me know.
Have fun making it!
