Abrahimowicz Coat of Arms Meaning

Argent is the heraldic metal Silver and is usually shown as very pure white. It is also known more poetically as pearl, moon (or luna) 1. In a sketch or drawing it is represented by plain, unmarked paper 2.

The feather, especially that of the ostrich appears with great regularity in the crests of a full achievement of arms, typically in the shape of a plume. Wade associates this device with “willing obedience and serenity of mind”. 3 They are much less common on the shield itself, unless part of an arrow, which may be feathered of a different colour, or a quill pen. 4
