The armiger's life includes many varied locations which they combined into an elegant whole. The armiger was born in France (in Alsace), hence the composition. They adopted the firesteels because they light up darkness like scientific research does, one effortful spark at a time, but they are also a reference to Serbia. The armiger later moved to Canada. This is represented through the Maple leaves, a small detail which is almost hidden, which the armiger finds aesthetically pleasing. Finally, the Vert field is a personal preference, and also a nod to Asia, where the colour was more accessible in the Middle Ages. The crest is a traditional roof ornament from Japan, and a way to allude to a folktale called "Koi no takinobori" whose moral is that hard work goes not unrewarded.
