The cross patee has arms of equal length that are narrow at the center and broader at the ends. It sits within a shield with three little crescent moons, one at each point of the shield. It is surrounded by a Latin legend, in Lombardic script, that begins with a smaller cross followed by an S' which signifies that it was ones own personal seal.
