Design rationale

The armiger adopted these arms, originally with the tinctures reversed, in 1994. The sword represented his law enforcement intrests and the idea of service. The wings represented protection with the sense of holiness. Combined, the winged sword symbolizes the Sword of the Spirit. This was originally argent, surrounded by the "blackness" of sin. Following some major changes in the armiger's life in 2001 he decided to change the tinctures. The winged sword had become a symbol of the armiger surrounded by the light of Christ. The horse in the crest is a canting of his first name, Philip, which means "lover of horses." The motto, Beati Pacifici, comes from the Latin Vulgate translation of Matthew 5 meaning "blessed are the peacemakers."
