Coat of arms

Recommended Posts

Jarl Daniel,

 

The coat of arms of Humlebæk Island looks very nice. What do the various components of the coat of arms symbolise?

Jarl Daniel,

And what does the motto mean?

Thank you.

 

The motto, År var alda comes from the creation stanza of the Völuspá. It means "[When] years were old."

 

The dragon is the old heraldic animal of my mother's family, and the two knights symbolize stability and security.

Jarl Daniel,

 

Where is your mother buried? Or was she cremated?

 

That is a very interesting question!
