Description:
The stained glass roundel features a coat of arms. A smaller roundel is centrally situated within the larger, divided into four quadrants with another smaller roundel inside. In this central pane is a silver shield with a white floral pattern. Inside the shield is a truncated branch with three red heart-shaped fruit or leaves. The shield is set against a red background inside the roundel, with a circular darker red design around the shield. This inner roundel is framed in yellow, and surrounded by a circular green laurel. Around this is a circle of translucent glass. In the widest circle, ornamental golden geometric patterns transform into leaves on a translucent background. (Tomasz Andrzej Grzybowski)
