Background and History:
The armiger, the son of Christopher David Kelly and his wife Yang Liu, was born in China and is now an Australian citizen. Mr. Zhang will inherit his father's coat of arms, and until such time, uses his father's arms differenced with a label of three points, the English mark of cadency for the eldest son.
The rose, eagle, and Chinese Dragon represent the ancestry of the family: the rose for England, the Chinese Dragon for China, and the eagle for Austria.
The Chinese dragon holds the Liu clan totem to represent the armiger's mother. Clan totems are an ancient form of Chinese family symbol.
