Heraldrys of family: Cristo
Nobility crown Cristo Ancient and noble spanish family, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has spread, during the centuries, in different European regions and worldwide. The clear nobility of the family is confirmed by the presence of its blazon in the valuable work "Repertorio de blasones de la comunidad hispánica", by Vicente de Cadenas y Vicent. (Ediciones Hidalguia, 1985). Besides, this family, in all ages, always stands out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention:... To be continued

Jorge, militiaman, present at the Battle of St. Quentin; Juan Antonio, landowner in Andalusian territory, flourishing in 1583; Francisco, councilor in Malaga, flourishing in 1601; Roberto, Doctor of Law, flourishing in Malaga, in 1629; Felipe, canon in Tiana, flourishing in 1641; Martin, landowner in Andalucia, flourishing in 1645; Alejandro, who served the king of Spain during the revolt of Masaniello in 1647; Felipe Mariajurist living in Malaga, in 1661; Juan Antonio, militiaman, flourishing in 1713; Francisco Maria, councilor in Seville, who died before 1724; Fr. Julio, canonical and apostolic prothonotary, flourishing in Malaga, in 1741; Martin, doctor of law, living in Malaga, in 1768; Jorge, ambassador to the Holy See, flourishing in 1781. From the analysis of colors of the coat of arms we can have some information on the family virtues. Gold ("or") symbolizes generosity and elevation of the mind; the lion means bravery, strength, ferocity, and valour; red ("gules" is the symbol of strength, power but also fervent love for God and neighbor; the star ("estoile") symbolizes celestial goodness, leadership and excellence; green ("vert") is symbol of hope, joy, and loyalty in love. Family names so old, without any doubt honor not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
