A LITTLE NOTE OF HISTORY
This collection is inspired by the Monegasque coat of arms. The lozenges take up the shield of the coat of arms of Monaco, tapered Argent and Gules. The shield, or coat of arms, is decorated with white diamonds, the silver, and red diamonds, the gules.
Other components of the Principality's history are present:
The two monks, each carrying a sword, illustrate the founding episode of the Grimaldi dynasty. Indeed, it was in 1297 that François Grimaldi, known as Malizia, (the crafty in Italian) and his companions stormed the fortress of Monaco, disguised as Franciscan friars with swords hidden under their cassocks.
The collar that surrounds the shield represents the Order of Saint-Charles, the highest national distinction. It was instituted in 1858 by Prince Charles III as an affirmation of the sovereignty of the country and is awarded by the Sovereign Prince of Monaco to reward merit and services rendered to the State or to his person.
The closed princely crown represents sovereignty.
And finally, the motto " Deo Juvante ", written on the banner and which is translated "with the help of God".
This maxim was that of Lambert Grimaldi who in 1477 became the motto of the Grimaldi dynasty. Lambert Grimaldi having succeeded by a game of alliances and "with the help of God" to free himself from the Genoese influence.
