- My son took a picture of what appears to be a coat of arms found above the front door of the church at Mission San Fernando Rey. At the top is a red hat with red rope and 15 red tassels stacked in a pyramid form surrounding a shield with a sword through the middle. The shield is blue on the left with images we can't determine and red on the right with 3 crescent moon shapes.
