This is based on a heraldic falcon. In Heraldry, the falcon signifies someone who is hot or eager in the pursuit of an object much desired. It is frequently found in the coats of arms of nobility from the time when the falcon played an important social role in the sport of kings and nobles. It is found as a heraldic bearing as early as the reign of King Edward II of England. The falcon was also the badge of one of King Henry VIII’s wives, Anne Boleyn, and was later adopted by her daughter Queen Elizabeth I.
