Balances have traditionally been a symbol of fairness and justice. They were adopted as a symbol by the Company of Bakers in London and are still used today as a symbol of an unbiased court system.
The open book signifies manifestation and is also considered a symbol of learning.
The sword is the emblem of military honor and should incite the bearer to a just and generous pursuit of honor and virtue in warlike deeds. It is also symbolic of liberty and strength.
The battle axe, or hatchet represents execution of military duty.
