Design rationale

The cross and the increscent represent affiliation to the Polish-Lithuanian-Ruthenian nobility. At the same time, in this particular case, the arms would be mostly interpreted as a symbol of the conversion to Christianity of those who came from the East, meaning on Hebrew Mongols who accepted «the cross», as Khazarian refugees - then as part of the Ashkenazi Jewish community, at some point in time, in the Polish-Lithuanian State.

The wolf is a totem of the Ashina's clan, and golden wolf head is the banner of the Ashina in the historical sources. Here it represents armiger's paternal ancestors, and original religion of his ancestors – the Turkic Shamanism. The compartment symbolizes armiger's connection to these ancestors.
