Note :

The hedgehog, which is usually referred to as an urchin in heraldic terms, is an ancient symbol of one who is a thoughtful provider.  Developed into a porcupine, it becomes a symbol of invincibility.  It was used by France’s Louis XII with the motto "Eminus et cominus" or "De pres et de loin", and used over a doorway at Blois.
