Description:
The stained glass features a heraldic shield encased in a circular frame. The shield at the centre is divided by a chevron pattern, with alternating red and white sections, and adorned with blue fleur-de-lis. Above the shield is a helmet, with mantling in blue and gold, flowing on both sides of the shield. The shield and helmet are bordered by a red band, all encased within a thick black circular border adorned with golden accents. (Shinsaku Kataoka '26)
