Registration number 20100321G
This certifies that the heraldic arms of Michael A. Smith are registered as an original design and are described by the blazon below
The key represents the arms of Obwalden, Switzerland where my family comes from. The white chevron represents the Swiss Alps. The blacksmith's hammer is a pun for my last name, Smith. But it also represents the fact that my life revolves around art and creativity. I am also learning to be a blacksmith. The crest is my favorite animal, a raven, on top of an anvil maintaining the key which represents Switzerland to me. And it is regardant because it is looking backwards towards my family's history there.
