The Rev'd John Cohen, PhD, FRSA, FACE, FSA Scot.

Arms: Per ale Or and Vert a cross counterchanged, in dexter chief and open book
Proper fore- edges and binding Gules and in sinister chief a mullet Argent, the
shield ensigned of an ecclesiastical hat with one tassel on either side Vert.

Motto:"Sapienta Per Deus".

Grant: 18th March, 2008: 128th page of 87th volume of the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings of Scotland.

The rendition of the arms has been created by David Murphy of Canberra, Australia.

The motto is interpreted as "Wisdom through God".
The hat and counterchanged cross stand for my vocation as an Anglican priest, the open book signifies my deep interest in academic studies, while the white star is symbolic of the stars in the southern skies. The red waratah on the lay helmut is for the fire of the Holy Spirit. It is to be noted that the waratah in its natural habitat blooms only when the country has been scorched by bushfire.
