The Arms of Christiano Arnhold Simoes, Earl and Lord of Aboyne

The armiger is the holder of the feudal Earldom and Lordship of Aboyne.

The armiger first petitioned the Lord Lyon in November 2016, having acquired the baronial dignity of the Earldom and Lordship of Aboyne. The Lord Lyon, having researched the name suggested the design for the arms but was open to further suggestions for the crest and motto.

Lyon choose the boar’s head between two garbs, as well as the colours green and silver because these have historical connections to the Earldom and Lordship of Aboyne. As for the Lion, this is taken from an old Portuguese achievement (XV century) for a Simões creating him a knight and a lord. Although the armiger had no choice on the design of the shield, he had free choice on the crest and motto.

For the Crest, the armiger chose the pelican in her pity; it symbolises that his legate is both a sacrifice and an offering to his descendants. Also, the pelican is the alchemic symbol of distillation and rectification, which means the preparation for the ascension of one’s soul. There is also symbology in having 5 chicks and 2 of them holding an acacia.

As for the motto, it is a reminder of the armiger’s quest for happiness by self-exploration and the practice of letting go of one’s ego. This quest is as old as humankind, and even under the bludgeoning of time, it stands yet (Stat Adhuc).
