Blazon of Arms for Clifford Brunetti:
- Crest – “On a Cliff Gules an Owl wings elevated and displayed Or charged on the breast with a Chevron Vert.”
- Arms – “Vert a Saltire between four Fire-balls Or enflamed proper.”
- Badge – “Encircled by a Jujutsu Belt tied in base Purpure an Owl displayed Or charged on the breast with a Chevron and holding in each foot a Roundel Vert.”
Meaning of Crest and Arms:
- Crest – the red cliff is the Ness of Shaldon, where my mother grew up and was an influence into my name. The owl is Balthazar, a horned owl that lives in my back yard and is also an allusion to my service in the U.S. Air Force as is the chevron on its chest. The Great Horned Owl has no equal in the sky, it is swift, silent, and deadly at night.
- Arms – the saltire cross is the Greek “Chi” which spells the first letter of my name. It is also a powerful protection symbol, an allusion to many years in the protection of others in military, state, and private sectors. The four fireballs represent my four children; each born in a different season. The height of the fireballs are the summer solstice on top, the two equinoxes in the center, and the winter solstice at the bottom of the shield. Fireballs also allude to my maternal great grandfather Sir Peter Ball, Baronet of Mamhead, Devonshire, England who bore three fireballs on his arms.
