Symbolism[edit | edit source]

Shield:
The cross estrée overall stands for Latin FIDES, that is, "faith" (from below to the top) but also "loyalty" (to the armiger's sides). The tinctures show the narrow and hard path of abnegation and honesty (Sable) with their eventual underlying reward (fimbriated Or). The cross fleury represents a preheraldic symbol of the armiger and Jesus as a model for life. John 14:6: "I am the way (the crosslets, cardinal points), the truth (Argent) and the life (the jewel)". The wolf is a reference to his family in both sides: the paternal side, for his greatgrandfather's family soubriquet, "the Wolf"; and the maternal side, as a canting reference. It's also a totemic animal of the armiger and an Iberian and Roman symbol (also a symbol of Mars, etymology of his name), cultures that are related to the roots of his city and to his work as a history guide. Chasing the star it seeks knowledge and transcendence.
The eagle represents freedom and is also a nod to Saint John for the many in the agnatic line like his father. The Sacred heart is the importance of living through the practice of love and a canting reference to his mother. Together, they rise high from below, guarding the love they bear, like the armiger's family. Finally, Azure is for the Mediterranean sea, Gules is for the preeminence of Love and, together, the colours of the armiger's city.

Crest: The intact left(-handed) hand among flames refers to Romans 8:31: "If God is with us, who can be against us?". Also invokes a fair attitude before conflicts and the martyrdom of Saint Marius, for the warcry "Semper fidelis" and as a canting reference.

Motto: From the Roman philosopher Musonius Rufus sentence: "Si quid turpe feceris cum voluptate, voluptas abit, turpitudo manet; si quid honeste feceris cum labore, labor abit, HONESTAS MANET." "If you do something dishonest for the pleasure, the pleasure passes, dishonesty remains; if you do something honest with sacrifice, the sacrifice passes, HONESTY REMAINS."
