A little over a year ago, I was befriended by a distant relative from Germany on Facebook, and added to a group full of "Otterbein's". One of the members of the group added the Otterbein family crest and I found it to be a little outdated.
Without removing any of the major symbols from the crest, because each symbol has a specific meaning, I made the crest more visually appealing.
Each Symbol and its meaning...
Otter- One who lives life to the Fullest
Wings- Swiftness and Protection
Helmet- Strenght and Protection
Wreath (around shield)- Triumph
Gold (Yello)- Generosity
Green- Hope, Joy, Loyalty in love
