The Azure of the field
is a tincture of choice, the Or of the fess reflects that of the
lion on the shield and the crest. The three roses, upon the fess,
represent England, the Armigerís home. The tower is a reference to
the Tower of Goslar. Goslar, where the armiger was born, is a
historic town in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The lion is a
reference to the armigerís surname; Aslan, the noble golden lion who
epitomises the goodness and justice of Narnia in the Chronicles of
Narnia by C.S. Lewis.
The Swords represent
strength and, although not of the same type as that of the sword of
Ali, are a reminder to the armiger of the symbol of Alevism in
Anatolia, from where the armigerís family originate. Anatolia, also
known as Asia Minor, Asian Turkey, the Anatolian peninsula or the
Anatolian plateau, makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey.
On the crest, the
Cyprus Trees represent Cyprus, where he spent a total of thirteen
years during his undergraduate years, achieving a Masters in
Architecture, and working in the Eastern Mediterranean University as a Research and
Teaching Assistant for six years. Cyprus is also the birth place of
his daughter, the eldest of two children, whose name is Akdeniz,
which means Mediterranean, and in his heart, his spiritual home. The
Church is that of Barford St. Michael and represents the Manor of
Barford Olaf. The lion, Aslan, is Lord of all he surveys.
The motto can be
translated as Science is the Future.
