Quast Family Crest

My family's last name has always been a bit of mystery. 

A quick Google search of the etmology of my last name reveals:

So it's fair to say I wasn't jazzed about that inspiration. Instead I called up my dad to ask what our forefathers did back in the day. Apparently we're a military family. Service in our family goes back generations, and continues with me. I served in the Air National Guard as an aircraft mechanic. My great-grandpa fought in a few wars, and to hear my grandma describe him, he was "small but fierce". I liked this description, and incorporated that along with a few military icons into our crest.

Growing up, our family always had motorcycles. I was taken on rides as soon as I was able to reach the foot rests, and I loved every second of it. My dad and his brothers have fixed and rode bikes all their lives, and I wanted to pay tribute to the freewheeling spirit that runs in our family.
