The cross estrée represents Latin 'Fides', horizontally, the 'loyalty' to family and friends; vertically, the 'Faith' in God. Sable is the colour of honesty and hard work, with the fimbriation Or being the reward lying underneath those attitudes. The main tinctures are Gules for the commandment and importance of Love in all aspects of life and Azure for the Mediterranean. Together they are the colours of my city. The cross fleury stands for Christ (John 14:6) and Truth as guidance, as well as a preheraldic personal symbol. The wolf is for family, canting for both my paternal and maternal lines, spirit animal and a strong symbol for the Iberians and the Romans. It's chasing the star for trascendence, knowledge and the constant fight for enhancement I have learnt from my previous generations. The eagle and the Sacred Heart are for Freedom and evangelization through the practice of Love, for the message to fly "to the ends of the earth" (Acts 13:47). Also a canting nod to Saint John since I come from many in the agnatic line.
I'm left handed. The hand and the fire are a canting reference to the martyrdom of Saint Marius. Also, they represent loyalty, the spirit of facing conflicts with a fair attitude and are the elements involved in the anecdote of Saint Paul in Acts 28:3-5. The spirit of this anecdote leads directly to my original first heraldic motto from Romans 8:31: "If God is for us, who can be against us?".
