SEAL DESCRIPTION

The seal is of Spanish style. The inner part is the so-called "field",
painted in gules (red), representing strength, boldness and chivalry,
qualities that a sailor must show in war.  

The "heart" of the seal is a rose of the winds in "enamels" of gold and silver,
which represent professional guidance, nobility, power, wisdom and integrity.

 The "campaign", the lower part of the shield, is occupied by blue and silver waves,
which represent the sea and the rivers that limit the country´s borders whose
defense is entrusted to the Navy.

The seal has as a "support" a silver anchor, on which it rests and holds its support.
Behind the anchor appear two bronze culverins, which symbolize war.
As custodians of the seal, two tritons  (mythological marine deity) have been placed,
 carrying two tridents in gold, and first known fighting element of the mythology
and history of the sea.
