Step Seven: Put it all together. On your crest, you need to have a Latin motto, a background colour and a minimum of four other items including a flower, an animal, an object and one more of your choice. Each of these objects will have to represent you, your interests, your passions, your srengths in some way. Be prepared to display your completed, attractive crest in class and explain in two – three minutes the symbolic meaning behind each of your chosen objects on the crest and what it says as a whole.
