About the Riedmann Family Crest
The crest you see at the top of this page is a crest that Lou (or is it Uncle Lou, or Grandpa Lou, or Great Uncle Lou, or Great-Great Uncle Lou, or ... oh, nevermind) requested several years back. Below is an explanation of the what the colors in the crest symbolize. This crest was put on the t-shirts given out at the 1992 reunion.
However, this is not the only crest in existence. Renie (or is it Aunt Renie, or Grandma Renie, or... oh, forget it) also has a crest that she found. I have displayed it below. You can decide for yourself which you like better.
The colors of the German flag are Red, Black and Gold which probably explains why the crest has these colors.
Of course, the crest that Lou received came with a disclaimer from the company that made it. It is intended to represent what their researchers feel our name means. So for this reason I have considered creating a new crest with the following images placed in each quadrant of Lou's crest.
- A mug to honor the our grandfather and great-grandfather who were both brewmasters.
Let the debate begin!
