NAME - "KEI". Dutch for boulder (just to remind you our surname is Stone!!). Also used colloquially in NL to mean "OK" and the Dutch youth also use the word to mean "thumbs up, cool, in fashion". Pronounced "kay" or "kye" depending on your dialect,
MOTTO - "AUDE MOVERE" - Dare to move.
LYRIC - "Anywhere Is" by Enya and in particlar the phrase "In motion on the ocean" or as we say "Emotion on the Ocean" - and we are sure there will be lots..
Background colours, from signalling flags, spell out K-E-I clockwise in
. Left hand quadrant
represents that famous nautical phrase "Hey, Ho me hearties" and the
Seven Seas. Right hand quadrant represents "Stone the crows".
Bottom quadrant is a fijfster in the centre of the black circle in "I".
Incidentally, a fijfster, if fitted, should remain unpainted or the same colour
as the hull
colour until the final payment for a barge has been made. It is then painted
a different to denote that there is no owed money or mortgage/loan on the vessel.
The full achievement is as shown below:
The supporters are 2 Sea Horses "salient" as both Colin and Ali were born in a Chinese Year of the Horse and as it is a barge, then Sea Horses were appropriate.
All heraldic ideas were devised and developed by Ali and she also did all the drawing and art work.
