About Hirsche von Mises
The Mises coat of arms was awarded in 1881 when Hirsche's father, Mayer Rachmiel Mises, was ennobled by the Emperor Franz Josef I of Austria.
In the upper right-hand quadrant is the staff of Mercury, god of commerce and communication (the Mises family was successful in both; they were merchants and bankers).
In the lower left-hand quadrant is a representation of the Ten Commandments. Mayer Rachmiel, as well as his father, presided over various Jewish cultural organizations in Lemberg.
The red banner displays the Rose of Sharon, which in the litany is one of the names given to the Blessed Mother, as well as the Stars of the Royal House of David, a symbol of the Jewish people.
