Symbolism

Badge

This badge incorporates a reference to Mr. Sprules’ heritage. The coronet is unique for Mr. Sprules. The lion alludes to a lineage from both England and Scotland. The cinquefoils represent lavender flowers, symbolizing that his ancestor Sarah Sprules held a Royal Warrant to provide lavender oil to Her Majesty Queen Victoria. Moreover, the antique crown alludes to a connection to the chiefly family of the Frasers of Lovat in Scotland in whose arms this symbol appears.

Motto

Meaning “Honour in all we do.”
