Design rationale

The lion appears in ancestral arms, and is differenced in these arms by adding two tails and changing its color from silver to yellow. The eagle, arrows and Chinese dragon represent his mother's ancestry while the rose, shamrock and scotch thistle in the crest represent his father's ancestry. The Southern Cross is for our being an Australian family.
