I have been looking for the Hauck Motto and I hae not been able to find it. Also while i was looking i stubled upon two diffrent hauck Coat of arms one of them has a sable shield with gold lozenges the other one has a blue and gold shield that is split with a loin one the shield and also a lion for the crest. Are both of these the Coat of arms or is one a fake? I would really like to know for personal sake. Also would anyone happen to know the motto?

Hi

Both are fake. When I was in Germany in 1989 doing research I went to the State Archives in Ludwigshafen and got to talk to a researcher doing a fellowship there from the US. He explained to me that the crest with the lions which was supposedly dated to the 11th century was too ornate for that time considering who it was alleged to belong to. He pointed out details in the crest that weren't even in usage at that time.
The other crest which is more simple, is simply a product of someones imagination since it does not show up on any heraldry records I have ever seen.

Thanks

Hi

Sorry for the second note. On the more ornate crest, the motto is "Ich trew mein stern"
Which is suppose to be very old German for 'I am true to my star". However, it really does quite translate that way.

Thanks again
