The torches represent his love of learning and theological education. The three lions are from the arms of the English county of Dorset where he was born. The two books reflect his motherís calling as a librarian and emphasize the love of learning. The tun pays tribute to his surname, Cooper (meaning barrel maker). The ancient Saxon type crown used in place of a wreath emphasizes his overall Englishness while the flames issuant therefrom pick up the theme of learning from the torches of the arms.
