Kate and Pippa, eat your hearts out. I am now the proud holder of my very own coat of arms.
A little less conventional than the red and blue acorn themed “lozenge” designed for the
Middleton sisters, my own emblem is in the shape of a rabbit and features Wonder Woman,
my self styled alter ego, along with a few of my favourite things (Rioja and boiled egg with soldiers).
Its triangular shape represents the three most important people in my life (my husband
and two children), while there is also a nod to my favourite film, Educating Rita, and
the Tominey family motto: “It’s made its way by the way it’s made,” which used
to adorn the families fleet of ice-cream vans.
I have reader Matt Evans to thank for my very own slice of moder-day heraldry.
The fine art graduate first started creating alternate coats of arms for his friends
and was soon commissioned by Birmingham’s Royal Orthopaedic Hospital to
design 12 “shields” for employees and patients. All you need to do is fill out a
questionnaire and you, too, can have a coat of arms with a twist.
