Heraldic artists of old developed their own unique language to describe
an individual Coat of Arms. In their language, the Arms (shield) is as follows:
"D'or a un cerf elance de sa., soutenu d'une terrasse racheuse d'arg."
When translated the Arms description is:
"Gold: a black stag leaping on a silver terrace of rocks."
Above the shield and helmut is the Crest which is described
"Le cerf iss."
A translation of the Crest description is:
"The stag issuing."
