While the meaning and awarding of the Heraldic symbol known as The Astral Crown is unclear. The image is shown in Heraldry as a Gold Crown (or Coronet). Above the Spires of The Crown is affixed a series of Wings (which surround The Top). The Astral Crown was placed above (traditionally) The Shield – or primary Coat of Arms. While now attributed to a high ranking Officer of an Air Force (or the Coat of Arms of an Air Service in general), whose deeds in Service warranted recognition – and already held a Peerage, The Astral Crown may have earlier been used to convey a ''deed high above all others'' (using height or sky in the imaginative and not literal sense).
