"I see no difference between the two."
The insignia of the family is a wolf, or rather, the heads of two wolves facing each other or in opposite directions. Members of the dynasty are known for their love of quality liquors and port wine.
The dynasty possessed great wealth. In addition to its family ties, the Mengsk Dynasty possessed numerous industries, including machine tooling and AAI and hovercar production. All of these industries were self sufficient, owning everything in the process that led to the finished product.

The men of the Mengsk dynasty have a liking for port. Angus preferred amber and white port, Arcturus liked ruby port, and Valerian is fond of the tawny variety.
When designing the insignia of the Mengsk Dynasty, Blizzard initially considered using the lion as a symbol. However, this would be too similar to the flag of the Kingdom of Stormwind from World of Warcraft. As such, the wolf was chosen, referencing the emperors of Rome.
