The Crown of Thorns and the Three Nails, which are also found in front of the Virgin in the original icon, also symbolize that group's devotion to her Sorrows. The three (3) stars affirm the Virgin of Solitude's age-old title as the Luz de Filipinas, while the two angels supporting the shield likewise depict the angels found in the original icon. The Crown that surmounts the shield and the inscription below give reference to Her affirmed title as the Queen of the Province of Cavite.
