Coat of Arms  

Coat of Arms

The coat of arms was drawn by a heraldic artist based upon information about the Cuta surname and its association with heraldry.  In the language of the ancient heralds, the arms are described as follows:

                        "quartered: 1st, or: the letter "C" sa.; 2nd
                         and 3rd, az.;a sarpent nowed vertical., 4th
                          or.; a border sa. clarged with a small inner
                           shield purple."

The Cuta arms as translated:

                            Divided into quarters: 1st quarter, gold
                            background; a black initial "C", 2nd and 3rd
                            quarters, blue background; a green serpent
                            twisted in a knot; 4th guarter, gold
                             background; a wide black border. a small
                              purple inner shield placed over all.

A serpeat symbolizes universality, wisdom, healing. Seven vivid colors were
chosen for use on shields of armor clad knights to easily identify them at a
distance.  The heraldic colors gold, silver, purple, blue green, black, and red were symbols.  The Cuta coat of arms incorporated purple.  The purple represents nobility, distinction.
