This stained glass pane features an oval heraldic coat of arms within an octagonal frame. The coat of arms within the oval frame features a silver helmet at the top with gold embellishments and a red plume. Below the helmet, the main field of the crest is challenging to discern in detail but appears to feature a light base color with hints of red and blue heraldic crest. Surrounding the shield are baroque-style mantlings in gold, red, and blue. The central frame's background is slate blue, and the outer octagonal frame comprises geometric architectural elements within the black lead borders. Baroque motifs, such as acanthus leaves and floral designs in gold, can be seen within these geometric shapes. At the top of the outer frame is a symmetrical arched scroll and two gold columns on the sides. (Wasifa Orthy '26)
