Description and symbolism:
The color red expresses conviction and strength for the Armiger, while the color blue evokes loyalty and faith.
The eagle represents the Philippine Eagle which is native to Mindanao where the Armiger is located. It is also a symbol of the College of Business and Accountancy from which he graduated, and a general reflection of his visions in life. The keys represent the Armiger’s loyalty to the Catholic church, while the quill recalls the patrons of his community, St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Teresa de Avila, both doctors of the Church.
The lion represents courage and bravery, qualities essential to a human resources practitioner, as well as his fervor to face challenges without hesitation and with courage and strategy. The gold waves represent the Cagayan De Oro River, a symbol of the Armiger’s hometown.
The motto captures the Armiger’s belief that activities should be performed with a proper balance of urgency and diligence. In his view, if tasks are rushed too quickly then mistakes are made and good long-term results are not achieved. Work is best done in a state of flow in which one is fully engaged by the task and there is no sense of time passing.
