Coat of Arms
The Coat of Arms of the Duchy features the Ancient Serpent, which is both a tribute to the House of Medina Sidonia, the conquerors of Melilla who have seven serpents on their Coat of Arms, and a representation of our belief that the entire human culture and human civilization resulted of the fall of man and are, in a way, a creation of Satan. The Coat of Arms also depicts the Ducal motto Serpens decepit me, Latin for The serpent deceived me, a quote from Genesis signifying the inherent wickedness of all human beings. It is also the Coat of Arms of the Ducal Family.
