Symbolism[edit | edit source]
The Pulcinella on the crest represents my Neopolitan heritage. The horn he is holding represents Kentucky and my commission as a Kentucky Colonel. The bezant he is holding represents my Cornish heritage. The shield shows a wild man or more specifically Silvanus (Roman god of the countryside) which is canting for my last name, Silvestri (Latin: from the woods). I am an orchardist and gardener, hence apples and roses. The four apples represent my four sons and the three roses my daughters. The red wavy base is intentionally left blank so that my children can add a charge for difference.
