Description and symbolism:
Shield: The shield contains important elements related to his life and family. The two books symbolize his teaching profession, inscribed with the words “For God and Family” and the Alpha and Omega, all above a chevron representing his being a reservist in the Philippine army. The shield also includes symbols that reflect important places in his life. The three fish recall the City of Calbayog from which his clan originated, and the Monument of Gat Andres Bonifacio refers to the City of Caloocan where they settled and living place where he was shaped. The meaning of color is also important not only in the shield but throughout his coat of arms: blue for peace, yellow for appreciation and red representing courage.
