The stained glass panel features a roundel coat of arms with a thick, black border, divided into two sections. The top half of the crest displays a dark brown canine, which could be a wolf or dog, facing the right against a light brown and gold floral patterned background. Beneath the animal, there are three upward-facing blueish arrowheads. The roundel is surrounded by four quadrants. Each contains a single large flower with gold petals that radiate outward with a slight curl at their tips. (Shinsaku Kataoka '26)
