Gold coat of arms, with a goose royally crowned upon a lawn, the Savoy cross suspended on a blue ribbon at its neck.
The Contrada was given the title "Noble" in recognition of the valor its soldiers showed in the battles of Montemaggio (1145) and Montaperti (1260), after which it was awarded the title of preceptor, and the war of Siena (1552-1555), as well as for having built at its own expense the Bottini acqueduct.
