With a slight variation in the name, the Frigault Coat of Arms (see above left) was
registered in 1819 to a FRIGOULT family from Liesville, Normandy, France.
On a red (gules) background a chevron between two shells (escallops) on top in
yellow (gold) and a crescent in the base of the shield in white (silver).
Gules (red) symbolizes the virtue of Love of God, Charity and Courage. Gules gives
courage and liberality. It is the military color for excellence.
The Escallop was the badge of pilgrims, and was attached to the hood or hat. The
escallop is an emblem of safe travel. Because the shells, once separated, can never be rejoined, the escallop is also an emblem of fidelity.
The crescent stands for one who has been "enlightened" and honored by the gracious aspect of his "sovereign." It is also borne as a symbol of hope of greater glory.
