Her Coat of Arms shows a set of gold pincers on a red field to show her martyrdom. The pincers were just one of many instruments of torture (along with rods, racks, and fire) used against this 3rd century girl from Sicily. Eventually her breasts were cut off. Even so, she did not die during torture, but later in her cell. Her emblem in art is usually a silver dish with her breasts on it, but these are not used in her formal Arms, where the pincers alone are employed.
