Description:
This stained glass features a rectangular coat of arms. A shield in the lower section is divided into four quadrants; the top right and bottom left depict three white five-petal flowers on a red background. The other two sections are black, each with a rampant white dog wearing a gold collar. Above the shield is a knight's helmet in yellow and blue with a yellow crown and black, red, and gold wings on its top. Each wing has a white petal flower in its upper section. A rampant white dog sits between the two wings and is centered on the crown below. Rich red and white mantling encircles the shield which is flanked by columns. The coat of arms panel is framed on the top and the bottom by glass sections painted with decorative gold and white architectural elements, including a winged head resembling a cherub with a garland above the coat of arms. (Mone Kawano '25)
