The arms of Ulises Matias

These arms were assumed on 30th June 2007 upon the armiger’s retirement after over twenty years of distinguished service to God and Country.

The Gules of the first and fourth quarters was chosen to signify military strength; the Azure for loyalty to country and purpose. The Sable of the cannonballs (gunstones in heraldic blazon) represents constancy and grief for lost brothers and sisters; there being six in number which honours the battalion call sign of “Six Renegades”.

During his long service, the armiger was assigned to the protection of the President of the United States and the defence of the NCR (National Capital Region), defence of Baghdad and other cities in other countries; the lion represents the dauntless courage, bravery, strength, ferocity and valour for which the armiger was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal citing the action of saving eleven lives in combat operations in Abu-Graib in 2004.

The axe represents over twenty plus years of service to country as a devoted soldier, serving on multiple campaigns and combat tours; the cannon balls, as well as alluding to the battalion call sign, also represent having endured multiple encounters with artillery and emerging alive; the sheaf of wheat represents the harvest of one's hopes having been secured with the propagation of future generations. The armoured arm which envelopes the whole achievement represents qualities of leadership.

The armiger chose to have the mantling depicted in Azure and Argent, the colours of heraldic Vair which represents the fur of a squirrel.

The motto, Ut Sciant Pacem Colimus, may be paraphrased as We serve so that other will know peace.
