The Arms of Sardar Ajaybir Singh Sandhu

The armiger belongs to the Sandhu clan of Faridkot State which is an erstwhile Princely State or kingdom in North India, Punjab province. The word Sandhu is derived from the word Sindhu which was used to denote people of the land of seven rivers. In the year 1804, the ancestors of the armiger played a major political role in the history of this Princely State or Kingdom, by acting as Guardians of the State as well as Ministers of their Queen sister, Sardarni Biba Sahib and by making their nephews the ruler of Faridkot State who were known by the names of Rajah Gulab Singh and King/Raja Pahar Singh Brar, descendants of the Jaisal dynasty of King of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan State in India, upon recapturing the Kingdom, from assassins of the previous ruler Sardar Charat Singh and husband of their sister .The chevron in the shield is inspired by the shield and coat of arms of the King of the State.

The colour red denotes the sacrifices and Chivalry of the armiger's clan and the struggle for survival. The colour yellow (Or) represents hope, honour, loyalty and remembrance and both take inspiration from 19th century flag colours of the Sikh Empire.

The important charges upon the shield are the Sun symbolizing sunshine, optimism and strength. The charges of wheat stalks are symbolic of plentiful provision of food and fertility of lands coming from careful management of the land for the last 200 years. The family had a grant of 18,000 acres of land in the beginning of the 19th century by the ruler of the native State and subsequently a grant of 11,000 acres by the British Government upon moving to British territory in the mid of 19th century; a small proportion of which is still intact and remains in the possession of the family. The crossed swords symbolize defence and protection of the weak.

For the crest, the armiger has chosen a lion with a musket because the word Singh in the armigerís name means lion derived from the Sanskrit language and bestowed upon Sikhs by the 10th Master of Sikhs. The musket is symbolic of the military power of Sikhs in the 18th and 19th century in the Sovereign Sikh State and the military service of Sikhs in both World Wars of the 20th century for their motherland under the British Government.

The motto has been borrowed from Sikh religious texts in the ancient Persian language which literally translates as "God is always with us and his soporific qualities are infinite".

The armiger adheres to the above values while working as a lawyer and agriculturist and remembers and respects the history and legacy of his family, and the family members continue to do so to this day by providing services to the Judiciary, Police and Medicine.
