I have found the following information on the Sigman coat of arms.
I am skeptical of its accuracy since the source is somewhat doubtful.
A family member ordered (via a magazine add) a Family Heritage book.
The information in the book of "Sigman Family Name" is useless but the
crest information could be something to look into. Here goes.

start quote
From: The Burke's Peerage World Book of Sigman Page 2.11
The Sigman Coat of Arms (illustrated in the book) is officially
documented in "Rietstap's Armorial General". The translated
description of the arms (shield) is as follows:
"Divided horizontally: 1)Gold, and arm in a red sleeve, placed
vertically, holding three red roses with green stems and leaves.
2) Blue, a silver ship with silver sails, sailing on a silver sea,
in front of naturally colored rocks which are issuing from the left
side" Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described
as: "Three ostrich feathers, one silver between two Blue."
end quote

If any have access to the "Rietstap's Armorial General" to confirm
the accuracy of he description I would love to hear from you.
