Ludtke Coat of Arms Meaning

The most prominent heraldic symbol in the Ludtke Coat of Arms or Ludke Coat of Arms (often mistakenly referred to as the Ludtke Family Crest or Ludke Family Crest) is the acorn.Amongst the natural objects depicted on a coat of arms, trees feature frequently, either in whole or as individual branches and leaves or fruit. The acorn, often represented in its early state as vert (green) can be associated of course with the mighty oak, signifying, according to Wade, “antiquity and strength”, for obvious reasons. The two tinctures (colors) of the arms are azure (blue) and or (yellow). The former signies chastity, loyalty, and truth and the later conveys widsom, glory, and faith.

This coat of arms was ill adapted, at the top the number of thorns in the horns is wrong, the helmet looking forward symbolizes royal ancestry, the original helmet (peer) is turned to the left symbolizing decendence of low nobility (duke, marques, earl, viscount or baron) and its bars are gray, the slope of the shield to the left is a typical characteristic of the German heraldica, the shape of the shield is also wrong, the original is the hiberic format and not the classic French format, the arrangement of the paquife too is different from the original, the upward-facing crescent is a cadence mark indicating that the coat of arms was created by the second son and not by the firstborn or "the one who has been honored by the sovereign, yellow (or) is not a tincture but a metal and symbolizes wisdom and generosity / charity. http://www.editorawerlang.com.br/images/luedtkewappen.jpg https://rarebooks.nd.edu/digital/heraldry/cadency.html https://www.fleurdelis.com/symbolism_ABC.htm#Crescent https://rarebooks.nd.edu/digital/heraldry/charges/crowns.html http://www.heraldica.net.br/3_1_1_formas.htm
