THE NAME

HISTORY OF THE STEELE SURNAME

The Steele family finds its origins in the United Kingdom, in both Scotland and England, with national flags dominated by the colours blue and red, respectfully. For this reason, these bold colours were chosen for The Steele Family Foundation logo. The placement of these two colours purposefully create a division between the earth’s foundation (where the root cultivates), and the atmosphere (where the tree grows).

The name “Steele” stands for one who has come from steel (meaning a stile or a place where one has to climb). Another meaning for “Steele” is one who is considered to be as hard as durable steel. 

  • The colour silver signifies serenity and nobility
  • The diagonal band is checkered black and gold, signifying generosity, valor, or perseverance (gold).
  • The two red lion heads represent fortitude and creative power.
  • The blue upper third is charged with three gold rectangles, symbolizing loyalty and splendor.
  • Finally, the crest holds a naturally coloured eagle, holding a serpent in its beak.
