Description and symbolism:
The colors black and white refer to evil and good, and the shield speaks one word: Uncertainty. The Armiger’s life embodies uncertainty, ranging from the trivial such as choosing what to wear, to deciding to which track to take in direction. His life is full of uncertain decisions that put him or others in harm or in bliss. The shield is a reminder for the Armiger that life is full of uncertainty: you will never know what will happen until it happens. As a design, the stark appearance of the shield represents his love for visual arts and abstract expressionism.
In the crest, the quill and the gouttes of ink symbolizes the Armiger’s love for creative writing, as a visual representation of the writer’s motto, “Keep bleeding [ink to write]”.
The motto is a direct quote from the Philippine national anthem: ‘”Di ka pasisiil” means that none can trample the nation. While this speaks to the Armiger’s love of country, it can also be interpreted as rejecting the concept of “losing” from his personal ethos. The Baybayin script further reflects the Armiger’s patriotism.
