German:

Origin/meaning

The colour of the field, Purpure, is the armiger's favourite colour. The griffin symbolises their family's origins in Pomerania, where they owned an estate until the end of the Second World War. Griffins are also the armiger's favourite heraldic beasts (to emblazon). The comble, a dimunitive of the chief, embattled, visualising castle battlements, is supposed to represent the armiger's not-so-outgoing nature. The reason smaller comble allows for better spacing as opposed to a chief. The sabre is included to add visual interest. The broken Catherine wheel as the crest is a reference to local communal heraldry as well as the story of Saint Catherine which the armiger appreciates, although they are irreligious.
