The rationale for the arms takes account of the interests of both father and son. John Carlson is interested in meteorology and works in emerging markets in Asia and the Americas, whilst Jack Carlson, currently at Oxford University, is pursuing comparative studies of ancient Rome and China. The oars reflect an interest in rowing and their arrangement is an allusion to the flag of Finland, reflecting the family’s origins. The crest is in honour of Lisa, the Carlson family dog (a white English Labrador).

GrantedAugust 2009 (College of Arms) to John Carlson.
