Description and symbolism:

The rose symbolizes hope and joy, while the book refers to the Armiger’s profession as a teacher. The inscription “Nam et Domisticus” recalls her devotion to God and family. To the Armiger, the bear symbolizes excellence and answering the call of duty; it is also a canting reference to her married family name, which traces to a Basque word for the animal. Blue and white are the Armiger’s school colors, while gold refers to her given name Helen, commonly believed to originate from the Greek word for “torch”.
