Hector Amet Robles

ARMS: Argent, an oak tree proper fructed Or, on a chief Azure three suns in splendour Or.

SOURCE, NOTES & CREDITS: Hector Robles, a living armiger, born 1960, and a friend of long standing, chose Arms of Admiration. The main charge, the oak tree and the style used to show the tree is a fairly close copy of the oak tree used in the arms of Pope Julius II
( 1503-1513 ) Source: page 9, Tak Tent 36, April 2007, Heraldry Society of Scotland. The arms are from the Letters Patent and entered in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland, Volume 85, folio 27, dated on 18th February 2003.

The Armiger as a “first raiser” of a new name in Scotland, and as the holder of the undifferenced arms of same, is the head of the name, arms and family of Robles and thus in pre-1750 terms a small chief, which in those days no one took official cognizance of, but the chief of his family for all that. dqw 20090624
