The use of bendy sable and argent represents a piano, which the armiger shares as a musical instrument with her grandfather.
The bend sinister represents unorthodoxy, or heterodoxy, countering black and white thinking, represented by the use of sable and argent in the field.
The chains is canting for the armiger's family name, but also represent law, which the armiger studies, and self-restraint in the face of excess. It also relates to this verse of Charles Baudelaire's 'Le Vampire': 'Infâme à qui je suis lié / Comme le forçat à la chaîne' ('To whom I'm linked / As is a convict to his chain').
The owl represents philosophy and measure, and the armiger's pseudonym,'Swooper'.
Said owl is standing between two branches, balancing out judicial authority represented by the axes terminating each branch. That same axe settles disputes ('tranche les litiges' in French).
The chrysanthemums are some of the armiger's favourite flowers, present in large part for aesthetic reasons and to allude to the armiger's interest in Victorian flower language.
Blazon: A bat Sable holding a thunder bolt Or.
Symbolism: The bat is another 'Swooper' referencing the armiger's pseudonym itself reference to Lou Reed's song Andy's Chest. The thunderbolt is since antiquity a symbol of authority and power showing the armiger's will to be the master of her own fate. said thunderbolt is also a representation of David Bowie's iconic bolt here used a reference to the entire genre of Glam rock. the overall badge, beside being a representation of the armiger's passion for music, invokes a form of surreal imagery symptomatic of the artistic movement of Dadaism revolving back to the themes of Andy's Chest and unorthodoxy. By pure twist of fate 'Dada' so happens to be the childhood nickname of the armiger. The badge's form is a direct reference to the Roman Aquila making it a fitting rallying sign.
