BLAZON OF THE ARMS OF THE ABBEY-PRINCIPALITY

A new blazon of the arms of the Abbey-Principality has recently been prepared. The Arms of the Abbey-Principality were first registered under Prince-Abbot Edmond I at the Polish Heraldic College at Warsaw in 1923 and subsequently with the American Heraldic College.

Quarterly azure and gules; 1st and 4th: the device of the Abbey-Principality of San Luigi as recorded from its foundation in 1883; 2nd and 3rd: a crowned lion rampant or holding an axe in sinister chief a star sable.

The arms are surmounted by a princely coronet or and surrounded by a blue, gold and ermine great mantle surmounted by a royal crown.

Motto: Quid Non Deo Juvante – What can we not do with God’s aid.
