Description and symbolism:
The cross fleury combines the cross, which symbolizes the Holy Cross and the titular patron of Barrio Sampalucan where the Armiger began religious service as an altar server; and the fleur-de-lis which commonly represents Paulinian schools, such as the Armiger’s elementary and high school: Saint Paul College of Makati.
The rose symbolizes his devotion to the Virgen de la Rosa: the Mother, Queen, and Patroness of Makati City.
The indented partition resembles the teeth of the saw blade, symbolizing the Armiger’s devotion to Saint Simon the Apostle who was, according to tradition, martyred by being sawn alive.
The tinctures symbolize the Armiger’s college alma mater, the Mapua Institute of Technology, as well as the apostles Saints Peter and Paul, titular patrons of his home parish.
Blazon: Shield: Per fess indented Gules and Or, in chief a cross fleury countercharged, in base a rose proper.
