The Arms of Evan
                                                McCarthy

Evan Patrick McCarthy, B.S. Physics, B.A. Philosophy, Companion of the Companionate of Merit of the Kingdom of Desmond Association, Fellow of the Augustan Society, officer of the Noble Society of Celts, member of the North American Chapter of the MacCarthy Clan, and an Officer of the United States Air Force. He is the son of Mark McCarthy of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts and Claire Lansing of Ionia, New York. Mark is the son of Daniel McCarthy and Mabel Champney who are respectively agnatic descendants of the MacCarthys of Carbery, and the de la Lande family of Champigny-sur-Marne, Paris. Claire is the daughter of Gerrit Lansing and Rita Smith who are respectively agnatic descendants of the Lansing family of Albany, New York, and the Smith family of Wilmcote, Warwickshire.

For the arms, Azure is symbolic of loyalty, Or of charity and wisdom, and Argent of peace and truth. The tinctures were chosen to represent these virtues; however, they also incorporate the tinctures in the arms of the Kingdom of Ireland, the province of Munster, and the armigerís 9th great-grandfather and founding ancestor in America, Gerrit Frederickse Lansing. As such, they reflect the armigerís patrilineal and matrilineal origins. The lion rampant guardant on a chief is remindful of the lions in the arms of the armigerís Norman, Welsh, and Scottish ancestors. The wreath of broom Or is representative of the armigerís Plantagenet ancestry. The chevron Or denotes the armigerís duties as a leader and a military officer to defend and preserve his country, people, and heritage. A displayed eagle is traditionally representative of oneís role as a protector, and so it was chosen to denote the obligations of the armigerís station. However, it also evokes the demi-eagle in the arms attributed to Charlemagne and to Domhnall Mac Carthaigh of Desmond, and so the crowned eagle illustrates the antiquity of the armigerís patrimony, Carolingian ancestry, and ancestral roots in the royal Houses of antiquity. The books and estoile are more allegorical than the other charges. Both are coloured Argent to denote that truth is the basis of counsel and righteousnessóthe hallmarks of good leadership. The closed books denote a willingness to always provide and heed good counsel, whereas the estoile symbolizes righteousness. The motto reminds the armiger that his principles, his obligations, and the tenets of the Church are the foundation for a life dedicated to God, clan, and country.
