The arms are pertinent to the armiger and his family. The green signifies the earth and the closeness and connection that he, and that of his family feel towards it. The six acorns represent the armiger's children and as the tree grows and matures he prays that his children grow in stature and strength of character as symbolised by the oak. The end product of the oak, is also used in the family business. The stag is a symbol of Mr Smith's birth and his closeness to nature as is the crest with the osprey and salmon, being inextricably linked with Scotland. The motto illustrates the armiger's personal belief that there is "nothing without honour".
