Historical note

When Eisenhower received the Order of the Elephant in Denmark in 1945, it was required of him to acquire a coat of arms so as to fill his stall in the Order's hall. His family arms were Or, an anvil azure. He added a crest (five stars of five points, recalling his rank as General of the Army) and a motto: Peace Through Understanding.
