Rendell Tamaca Salgado is a protestant minister of the Reformed tradition who was born and raised in Cavite City.

Description and symbolism:

Shield: The wolf in the shield is derived from the armiger’s name, Rendell, a variant of the name Randal which means “shield wolf”. It is a howling wolf, which means either calling a pack to gather or can be a wolf howling at the moon as one calling to a higher Power. The two compass roses symbolize direction and foresight as well as the Confessions and Creeds. The Bible and Cross represent the faith and vocation of the armiger.

Crest: The crest includes a kampilan sword as a representation of the armiger’s Filipino heritage. The arms were designed by the armiger with the advice of friends. Being the first in his family to bear his faith, it signifies a start of a new family line and thus carrying these arms to be passed down to descendants.

An additional emblazonment replaces the helm, crest and mantling with a Geneva hat and clerical stole to represent the armiger’s pastoral office within the Reformed tradition. An alternative emblazonment features native inspired elements, such as a kalasag shield, Ifugao headdress and fabric mantle and motto in Baybayin inscribed on bronze plaques.

Blazon: Shield: Or, a wolf’s head, erased, ululant and sinister facing Gules, on a chief of the last, between two compass roses Or, upon a book open proper, leathered and garnished Or, a Latin cross Sable. Crest and Mantling: A demi-wolf segreant Gules, grasping dexter a kampilan sword Proper and sinister a latin cross Sable. Motto: Dei Gratia Ad Dei Gloriam (By God’s grace, to God’s glory).

  1. Good day! I noticed that the arms are registered for copyright in the IPOPHL. I was wondering how can I have mine also registered for copyright. Thanks in advance!


    1. Hi Khamer, you can register for copyright an original drawing that you did yourself, at Note that copyright protection is only to protect the actual drawing/artwork, but not the design. To protect the design *in relation to a trade that you are using the design in*, like a business, you would need to submit it as a trademark – see for more information.
