"In Fide et in Bello Fortis" is the family creed for my maiden name, Bagwell.  It means "Strong in both faith and war." The coat of arms can be traced back to the 1480s from War of the Roses.  I believe the red rose indicates that we fought for the Lancasters, who did not win the war.  But that is just speculation.

I really like this colored version! Ummmm, the latin stuff.... I know "Pig-Latin" but that's it. Note from the artist--LOL! Hmm...not sure pig-latin would work out so well... Thanks, anywho!
