Gules a griffin segreant Argent within a bordure Or charged with a maple leaf Gules at each angle;
A mermaid affronty proper queued Vert grasping in her dexter hand a scimitar and in her sinister hand a staff proper supporting a gonfalon ensigned by a rose Gules;
TUIS ET TIBI HONORI ESTO;
The white griffin on red field is from the Polish arms of Gryf, here particularized by using a gold border with maple leaves for this Canadian branch of the family.
The wild rose alludes to Mr. Chledowski’s birth in Alberta. His wife’s ancestral background is symbolized by using a mermaid based on the arms of the city of Warsaw. The gonfalon alludes to her Polish herb Radwan.
This phrase in Latin means “Bring honour to thy family and thyself”.
