Design rationale

The armiger's first name, Everett, in Old English means "strong boar," so the boar is a canting symbol. The star refers to the armiger's home: the United States and ancestral homes, Texas and California, both of which use the star on their flags. The cross refers to the armiger's Christian faith. The Griffin is referential to the armiger's personal motto, "SAPIENTIAM DEBERE PRAEIRE FORTITVDINEM SEQVI" (wisdom should come first fortitude to follow) which is embodied by the head of the eagle leading the strong heart of the lion in the Griffin. Just the head is shown to further emphasize the importance of wisdom.
