Coats of arms

In heraldry,

are a visual or pictorial depiction of a surname, and were and still are a popular practice. It would be common to find roses, then, in the arms of many Roosevelt families, even unrelated ones (the name Rosenvelt means "rose field"). Also, grassy mounds or fields of green would be a familiar attribute. The Van Roosevelts of Oud-Vossemeer in Zeeland have a coat of arms that is divided horizontally, the top portion with a white

between three white roses, while the bottom half is gold with a red lion rampant. A traditional blazon suggested would be, ''Per fess vert a chevron between three roses argent and Or a lion rampant gules''. The coat of arms of the namesakes of the Dutch immigrant Claes van Rosenvelt, ancestor of the American political family that included Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt, were white with a rosebush with three rose flowers growing upon a grassy mound, and whose crest was of three ostrich feathers divided into red and white halves each. In heraldic terms this would be described as, ''Argent upon a grassy mound a rose bush proper bearing three roses gules barbed and seeded all proper'', with a crest upon a torse argent and gules of ''Three ostrich plumes each per pale gules and argent''. Franklin Roosevelt altered his arms to omit the rosebush and use in its place three crossed roses on their stems, changing the blazon of his shield to ''Three roses one in pale and two in saltire gules barbed seeded slipped and left proper''.
