Coats of Arms


Here are two great articles which have been published in the Pennington Pedigrees about heraldry. Great reading and full of information to help you understand coat of arms and crests as well as other interesting pieces of Pennington history.

If you look at the footer of our web pages, you will read more information about our Coats of Arms and what the Latin means.

In addition, there are graphic files of the Pennington Research Association's Coat of Arms that are based on the official one used by the PRA for you to use.  See the section below titled "Coats of Arms by Mike Pennington".

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
