Rendition of arms by Andrew S. JamiesonSpanish Blasón: Partido de azur y gules, y sobre el todo un castillo de oro de dos torres, surmontado un búho del mismo metal con las alas desplegadas, cargando sobre su pecho una pera de azur; bordura componada de veintidós piezas de oro y gules, cargadas estas ultimas de un copihue floreciente, de oro. Timbre: yelmo antiguo de hidalgo, de acero bruñido, sumado de un burelete gules y oro, de donde asoman tres plumas de avestruz de los colores rojo, oro y azur, respectivamente. Lambrequines: gules y oro. Lleva por lema: Sapere aude.

The arms represent elements of the ancestral origins of the Perez-Ramirez family in Asturias Spain, as well as elements allegoric of Cataluña and Chile. Asturias, the land of the Armiger's paternal ancestors is represented by the Azure, the colour of the flag of Asturias and the pear symbolising the patronymic name Perez. The twin towered castle represents the Catalan last name Castells for the armiger's wife's maiden name and is also a source of strength. The bordure compony Gules and Or is allegoric of the Catalan flag. On each Gules of the compony, the national flower of Chile depicted Or, ("The Copihue"), symbolises the armiger's birth place. The owl in the centre of the shield stands for Wisdom and Knowledge.

The armiger is a Knight of Yuste (Spain), Knight Grand Cross of the Order of Saint Michael of the Wing (Portugal) and Knight of the Corps of the Asturian Nobility, Spain [Cuerpo Colegiado de la Nobleza del Principado de Asturias].
