Description and symbolism:

The horse signifies readiness to act for one’s country. It is also a symbol of speed, intellect, virility and kindness. The symbols in chief represent values important to the Armiger: faith and hope are represented by the two fleur-de-lis, while the crescent moon recalls love. To the Armiger, white stands for peace, truth and sincerity, and black means superiority. In the crest, the cannon represents craftsmanship, and recalls the Armiger’s descendance from Panday Pira, a blacksmith who served Rajah Sulayman and Miguel López de Legazpi.
