The Moreland Coat of Arms hereby illustrated is officially documented in Burke's General Armory. The original description of the arms (shield) is as follows:
SA. A lion pass. Guard. In chief or in base a leopard face jessant-de-lis of the last.
When translated the blazon also describeds the original colours of the Moreland arms as:
Black; a gold lion walking, facing the observer, placed in the upper third, and in base, a gold leopard face with a gold fleur-de-lis passing through it
Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described as:
A natually coloured ship in full sail.
The ancient family motto for this distinguished name is:
Sils Tet Mordent, Mordles.
This translates as the following:
If they bite you, bite them
