Coat of Arms Added

I keep meaning to post an updated design for the coat of arms, but always find something else getting in the way of it.  So for now I have added the official coat of arms from the Reher Community page at http://www.amt-schenefeld.de/.

Official Description: Gold and red divided in a 2:3 ratio. The top displays three side-by-side green, black rooted juniper bushes (which look like romaine lettuce), the bottom a golden border horse.

History of the design: The design of the coat displays features which are characteristic and meaningful to the community of Reher. The three junipers shown in the upper third of the emblem are in reference to the Reher Kratt nature reserve, where there are woody plants such as juniper. The appearance of the border horse symbolizes the significance and importance of many years of trotter horse breeding in the Reher community.

Our Family Coat of Arms

Let’s face it. This might or might not actually be our official family coat of arms.  After looking at other families’ coats of arms the stag and the tree seem to be the only unique thing about it.  The knight’s helmet and the flourishes seem to show up on everyone else’s as well.  Colors may vary a bit, but the general idea is familiar.

What we need is an update!  A fresh take on the historical and something that we can all be proud of.  I have some ideas (and will post them once they are fleshed-out a bit more), but I would welcome anyone else who may have some as well.  Send them to me at greg.reher@gmail.com
