Andrew Francis Lorenz


Registration number 20160824A


This certifies that the heraldic arms of Andrew Francis Lorenz are registered and described by the blazon below

Arms: Argent a Gridiron Sable in bend sinister handle upward and on a chief Gules a quill pen tip to dexter Argent.
Crest: A roadrunner mid-stride Argent.
Mantling: Gules doubled Argent
Motto: Überleben und Trotz (Survival and Defiance)



Rationale

Argent represents the armiger's birthplace of Sterling, Illinois. Gules represents the blood of his ancestors and the heat of life's pressures. The gridiron is the symbol of St. Laurentius, his family's patron, who was martyred by the Romans by being grilled alive. The quill represents the ability to take the trials and tribulations of life (the gridiron), and rise above them creatively. The motto's meaning "Survival and Defiance" (represented by the Quill and Gridiron, respectively) is a reminder that creative thought works in defiance of tribulation. The roadrunner symbolizes the armiger's life traveling for work and his connection to the State of Arizona, where he attended university and started his family.
