The shield and motto from the family Van Dort from Sri Lanka, the descendants of Cornelis Jansz Van Dort. Tree standing in sea, with a star on top. The motto means "We hope for better". According to David Van Dort the coat of arms is simular of that of the VOC coat of arms for the province in which the early Sri Lankan Van Dorts lived. The VOC divided the country in different provinces and each province had a coat of arms. The VOC coat of arms contains the tree and the sea. Another explanation is that appel tree from Holland with a star from the East. Drawn after the 'Arms, Armorial Bearings of the Dutch period in Ceylon by J.L. Kalenberg Van Dort, Colombo Ceylon 1889, as part of a typed genealogy after van Altendorff.
