I received this wonderful sketch a few days ago, and have been allowed to share it with you. I promise to also show the finished version.

Claus: Did you attend Oxford University, or merely like the motto ¤ (from Psalm 27 v 1: Dominus illuminatio mea, et salus mea, quem timebo? The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom then shall I fear? Herren är mitt ljus och min frälsning; för vem skulle jag frukta?)

¤ Strictly speaking not a motto since the words appear on the open book in the university's arms.

Have not attended Oxford, but like the psalm, which I pray regularly.

A revised version, after a discussion about the division and how that followed the blazon.

I imagine that you or Ronny chose the unusual shape of shield after some discussion. I would merely opine that a traditional shape would allow for the crosses and the head to be more equal in size - but perhaps it was your intention for the head to be the principal charge and the crosses secondary.

Ronny has made the design on his own, but I couldn't be more pleased. The bear's is indeed the primary charge, as that is where the cant is, and the crosses secondary.
