Description:
"This stained glass window depicts a rectangular coat of arms. The shield is divided into two parts. The lower part is blue with gold and red fleur-de-lis symbol in the center. The upper part is yellow with two five-petal red flowers. Above the shield is a knight's scabbard helmet with a yellow crown and blue and yellow wings on the top. Each wing has two small red-petal flowers in its yellow upper section. A fleur-de-lis symbol sits between the two wings and is centered on the crown below. Rich red and yellow 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. (Tomasz Andrzej Grzybowski)
