In Reply to: Do we have a coat of arms? by Ben Tyler Nissen-Hart of 301

According to the book "Slekten Nissen fra Bov Sogn" by Gunnar Brun Nissen and Harald Nissen (the latter being my mother's brother and Gunnar is my grandfathers brother)
the insignia/coat of arms is, and I'm quoting the book in my translation, p. 82 chapter VIIII The Family's Coat of Arms:

"The Family's coat of arms is a red buck on a silver background, leaping right to left from behind three green trees. On the helmet one accending red buck, or a buck jutting out from the first of three green trees."
