In 2015 I discovered that my family name SanGeorge (San George), was actually derived from Sangiorgi, not SanGeorgio as I had previously been told. I wrote about it in a blog post here. After that, I began searching the internet for the name Sangiorgi to try and find out more about the family and it’s history. That’s when I came across a coat of arms for family Sangiorgi on Wikipedia.com from a book published in 1670.
After researching Heraldry, I found that everything in the coat of arms (aka: Family Crest) , including colors, shapes, character position, etc, are all symbolic, and have meaning!
For example, the Griffin featured in the main section, or charge, is a half lion, half eagle, represents courage and boldness, and is used to denote strength and military courage and leadership.
This style of griffin is called a rampant griffin. Rampant is the position it’s in, standing on one hind leg, about to attack. This griffin is also facing left, which means it is facing dexter. The dexter side is considered the side of greater honor. Also the wings indicate that this is a female griffin.
