The shield was designed by Sr. Victor Fernando Corante Pajuelo at the request of the Board of Governors in April 1949.

The College Motto represented on the Shield: Studiis et Rebus Honestis

According to an authority from the Classics Department at the University of Cambridge, as taken from the words of Horace, these words may best be translated as: For Honourable Studies and Pursuits
