Pictured is an eagle soaring toward the sun surrounded by the Italian caption "No L Temo" which translates to "Fearless" or "I Have No Fear". The eagle is symbolic for courage, swiftness and strength. Being the king of birds it was reckoned to be able to fly up to the sun, without any fear and gaze unwaveringly upon it. There is an old indian legend that the eagle alone among animals can look into the sun. According to the translation of St. Augustine, "The sun invigorates the eyes of eagles, but injures our own."
