The Romualdo Family Coat of Arms is on a shield of white and blue. The red, white and blue symbolize the family's early Dutch heritage.

White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection. White means safety, purity, and cleanliness. In heraldry, white depicts faith and purity.

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.

Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness.

Dark blue represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness. Dark blue is associated with depth, expertise, and stability; it is a preferred color for corporate America.

The shield has a red centered Hummet Cross which symbolizes our family's Christian roots.

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.

Dark red is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath and light red represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love.

Centered on the cross appears a yellow Lion Rampant. The lion symbolizes dauntless courage. Yellow is the color of sunshine. It's associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. In heraldry, yellow indicates honor and loyalty.
Light yellow is associated with intellect, freshness, and joy.

The upper left quadrant of the shield contains a coronet and a Helm. The helm symbolizes the first son of the family, and the coronet is symbolic of leadership. The upper right quadrant is blank symbolizing continued service and an
unfinished history.

The lower left quadrant contains the words "LAUS DEO" which translated from Latin means "To God Be The Glory!"

The lower right quadrant has a CASTLE with two watch towers. Each tower is representative of one for Mario's father and the other for his mother. The three doors represent the three sons in the family. A castle is representative of safety
and strength.

The bottom of the shield has a banner with the family name written upon it.
