The coat of arms

This Coat of Arm of the Holms is prepared by my son Kristian according to documentation in Burke's General Armory on how it would look for the name Holm. Please remember that that the Holms from Porvoo are not noble in any way in present generations, but it is common to have a Coat of Arms when the family is researched and published on the net. This coat of arms would fit any one of the many Holm familys found in Finland.
