Description:
The stained glass pane, featuring a coat of arms, has an octagonal frame with a black leading. It is divided into four sections, with a roundel outlined in black in the center. Inside the roundel is a gold shape, with floral detailing and patterns inside. The shape is curling at the edges in three places, showing the back to be silver. Running diagonally from the top right to the bottom left of the gold shape is a blue band, with three gold fleurs-de-lis, the symbol of France. It is set against a purple background, with similar floral details and patterns, and surrounding this are four green branches. In between these branches in three places are three yellow berries, respectively, and some smaller blue berries. Outside the roundel, the pane is decorated with identical gold acanthus leaves in each quadrant, against a clear background. (Mone Kawano '25)
