Addendum to Rich's Daniel's School Project

My friend Gail wanted to know what the saying on Daniel's shield meant. So here is the breakdown of the meanings behind the shield. The gold is for generosity and elevation of the mind, red means warrior and black is constancy, the quality of being enduring and free from change or variation. The symbol on the left indicates first born, the lion stands for dauntless courage. The four arms of the Maltese Cross stand for good sense, self-control, fairness and determination. The sword stands for justice. The lightning bolt is for swiftness and power. The Crown (mural) means defender of a fortress, token of civic honor. The gem stands for diamond or supremacy. The sun is glory and splendor. Last but not least the saying at the top "Meum pactum dictum" is My word is my bond.
