Junosza Coat of Arms Meaning

The main device (symbol) in the Junosza blazon is the ram. The two main tinctures (colors) are gules and argent.

Red in heraldry is given the name Gules, sometimes said to be the “martyr’s colour”1. The colour is also associated with Mars, the red planet, and the zodiacal sign Aries 2. Later heralds of a more poetical nature would sometimes refer to the colour as ruby, after the precious stone.3.

Argent is the heraldic metal Silver and is usually shown as very pure white. It is also known more poetically as pearl, moon (or luna) 4. In a sketch or drawing it is represented by plain, unmarked paper 5.

Both the Ram and the ram’s head appear in heraldry, depicted in a lifelike aspect. 6 Wade assigns it the meaning of “leader” on account of its role within the flock. 7 Wade quotes Nichols in suggesting that it most resembles the primrose, which “brings good luck to the finder”. 8
