Kabalega. I should probably know by your post nominals, but what Orders are you involved with?

    As for simple arms, the very little I know about heraldic design says that simplicity is a benefit. While mine have a great deal of meaning I feel like the design is simple, uncluttered, and in respect to the original purpose of arms could be relatively easily identified at a distance. I'd be glad to hear about the meanings behind your own design as well.
    That sure is a lot of Orders that you are a part of! The only Order that I am a member of is The Holy Orthodox Order of Saint George the Great Martyr - a religious chivalric order recently created with the blessing of the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).

    My other post nominal, OblSB shows that I am an Oblate of Saint Benedict.

    As for my Arms:

    The Or and Argent are reminiscent of the Vatican's CoA and serve to show that my family has Roman Catholic roots. The Gules is to show military service, which I am the third generation of my family to have served in the military. The Eagles represent that my family dates back to the Roman empire - their colors are to show loyalty to Church and Country during extreme grief - three to show that I am a third generation Italian-American

    The Eastern crown on the crest is to show that one part of my family came from southern Italy, which had ties to the Byzantine Empire, while the double-headed Eagle is to show that my family has gone East in that we converted to the Orthodox faith - so a meshing of East and West.

    The motto, Lucem Amat Virtus means Virtue loves light.

    The Medals are from my Military service. The Army Commendation Medal, and the Army Achievement Medal.
