The field of the shield is green, which in the immediate sense alludes to the armiger’s occupation as a Physician (the Doctoral robe of Medicine is green). To his descendants and future bearers of the arms, the green alludes to Eternal Life, promised in Christ in the Christian gospels (St John 3:16). On the field is placed a saltire, reflecting the armiger’s paternal family origin being originally from Scotland. The saltire is additionally part of the flag of the State of Alabama where he currently resides.

Upon the shield is also placed a golden cross potonce, the ends being splayed into three points, or a fleur-de-lis. The fleur-de-lis represents the armiger’s maternal line (née Frigard) with origins in France. More deeply, the three points have a Trinitarian derivative meaning. All together the saltire and cross potonce possess a total of eight arms which indirectly alludes to the surname of Carter, alluding to the wheel of a cart.

At the centre of the design is a poppy with symbolic adherence to the armiger’s profession as a physician Anesthesiologist. In a deeper sense, the poppy represents life in Heaven, free of pain and sorrow (Revelation 21:4).

The crest is the Eagle of Saint John. It derives immediately from the armiger’s wife’s family line, nee Jenkins, a surname from the Middle English meaning “John”. To future bearer of these arms, the Eagle of Saint John represents the Christian Gospels, reigning supreme over all of life. The three spheres under the eagle’s dexter talons, alludes to the armiger’s three children, and to future bearers of these arms, it is an allusion to the Trinitarian Christian Faith.

The motto is Latin for a portion of St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, chapter 4, verse 15: “to live the Truth in Love.”

Lastly, the Seahorse supporters symbolize the great oceans which touch the armiger’s distant countries of origin; Scotland and France (secondarily Norway and Germany) and the States in which he was born (Rhode Island) and of which he has spent most of his life, Georgia and Alabama, all of which are directly bordered by the Great Waters.

The arms as illustrated are featured on page 30 in the book “The Heraldic Art of John Ferguson” by Stephen Friar.
