Our family motto (at least our tripping motto) is “Vita est iter, non habitum”. In case you took German in high school (or some other non-romance language that doesn’t help with Latin), that’s (roughly) “Life’s a journey, not a destination.” Thanks, Aerosmith!
The colors of white on blue represents peace and sincerity built on a foundation of truth and loyalty.
The cross is a symbol of Christian faith.
The crowned eagle with wings extended symbolizes authority, bravery, ingenuity and protection.
The wreath of laurels is a sign of triumph and perseverance, and the green field was originally so I could see better see the design as I was making it, but we left as a symbol of hope, joy and loyalty in love.
