Charles Enoch Overstreet


Registration number 20150209B


This certifies that the heraldic arms of Charles Enoch Overstreet are registered as an original design and described by the blazon below

Arms: Gules, on a pale Azure fimbriated Argent three escallops of the third enfiled with as many vidame coronets Or.
Crest: On a wreath of Argent and Gules, a lamb rampant Proper gorged of a vidameís coronet Or, holding in dexter arm a market stick Proper erect with crook facing sinister and on sinister arm an eschuteon of the first thereupon a Chi Rho of the second.
Motto: From Strength to Strength

Rationale

With both English and Scottish heritage, the armiger wanted to combine both religious and cultural heritage into his armorial bearings. The escallops recall the armigerís pilgrimage through life and are intentionally rendered with sharp ends, alluding to the triangle which is an international symbol for recovery. Each escallop is enfiled with a vidameís coronet to represent the armigerís calling to the laity. The tinctures of the eschuteon are meant to allude to the national colors. The armigerís favorite image of Christ the Good Shepherd is represented on the crest with a lamb rampant holding an English market stick (used for shepherding as well as a walking stick for support) and bearing the ancient shield of Constantine. The crest creates a compelling image of a pilgrim preparing for battle with instruments of love and compassion.
