Design and symbolism:

Thunderbolts represent the power of God, most specifically the power that broke St. Catherine’s wheel at the time of her martyrdom. The two lions represent the values of faith and courage, as reflected in the motto. In their regardant pose, turned away from one’s front, the lions’ attitude represents the confidence of faith and courage, that one can safely face away, with God’s reassurance. The three roses represent the three siblings of the Armiger’s family.

Blazon: Shield: Per chevron Gules and Azure, three roses proper on a chevron Argent, between in chief four thunderbolts in saltire between two lions regardant, in base a broken St. Catherine wheel, all Or.

Crest: A dexter arm embowed vambraced Or grasping a sword Argent hilted Or.

Motto: Fides et Virtus (“Faith and Courage”)
