Our Coat of Arms
What Does It Mean?
The coat of arms is a heraldic visual design on an escutcheon, (I.e a Shield), surcoat or tabard. The coat of arms on an escutcheon forms what it called the central element on the heraldric achievement; In whole, it consists of the shield, along with the supporters, the crest and the motto.
A coat of arms can be used to represent almost anything, like a country, a county, a family, or even an individual.
The black silhouette of a key on the yellow/golden background at the op of the shield is to represent power and authority as keys typically do in civic heraldry.
The Golden Dove on top of the open book on the red background symbolises knowledge, education and technocratic values.
The coat of arms also features two pigeons facing towards the central shield on grass decorated with Tudor roses.
The motto "terra de domum de libera, et aurumpalumbi" is latin for "Land of the free and the home of the goldenpigeon".
At the top of the coat of arms features a pigeon with its wings spread infront of a glistening sunset as to represent a reoccurring legend in The Sohnland that a pigeon or a dove flew over the sunset, making the bird appear immensely bright and golden. This is where the Dove of Burning Gold originates, a mythological bird made of flaming gold or light that symbolises the divine right of The Sohnland.
