This stained glass window pane features a coat of arms. The panel is divided into twelve square sections by black leading. At the top of the shield, there's a knight's silver helmet wearing a golden crown. A rooster is perched on the crown. It has a pointed tail like a devil and spreads its dragon-like wings. The shield is gold and white, horizontally striped with three thick black bands. A trio of silhouetted black, lion-like animal with their forepaw raised, stands on the top black line. Four swirling acanthus white leaves are on both sides of the shield, and two gold leaves are on the beneath. (Mone Kawano '25)
