THE SCG LOGO
SCG did not have to look far for a logo that captured the essence of the organization.
The Sargent name was derived from the Old French SERGENT. "Sargent" officially represented "the sergeant or serjant, an officer of the law, a policeman." It also meant "an officer who was able to charge with enforcing of the law, the judgments of a tribunal, or summoning persons to appear before a court'”.
Familiar to all medieval registers, the "Sargent" name was brought to England in this manner. Early records of the name mention Edric le Serjant of the County of Yorkshire in 1185, Thomas le Sergeant in 1266, and John Sargeant in County Sussex in the year 1366. Thomas Elys Serjaunt of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379.
We decided upon the Sargent Coat of Arms because it reflects our dedication in providing swift, diligent security and protection in service to others.
The color red symbolizes a warrior and military strength. The white and silver background colors stand for peace and serenity. The combination of the colors is indicative of a military vocation, serving in both peace and war. The symbols including the helmet above the shield denotes security in defense, strength, protection and invulnerability. The chevron across the shield denotes protection and a provider of faithful service. The three dolphins on the shield denote swiftness and diligence. The manner in which they are placed about the chevron indicates service to other houses.
