What's the DEAL with the Symbol?
If you traveled back to the 1200's, someone started using his crest in Norway in my family. While my grandparents kept great record of the linage, the meaning of the shield is lost in time.
I'm not sure if it's related to the area my ancestors lived or if it was part of some kind of clan or army. It seems like the tree outline with the cross was very intentional, but online searches have bared no fruit. It's a puzzle with pieces missing in history.
The reason I choose to use it is because it mirrors a philosophy I use for marketing: Modern, rooted in history.
