The lozenges similar to those on the flag of Bavaria symbolize the family's german heritage, and the colors symbolize Sweden. The triband, similar to the austrian flag come from the coat of arms of Wallendorf (Eifel). The plain blue quarter symbolizes hopes of a calm future. The gryphon and swan both symbolize Östergötland from where part of the family has its roots, the snake symbolizes death and disease. The stump symbolizes the many family members who have had their lives cut short due to disease.
