michelangelo

The Buonarotti family of Florence first used this elegant symbol around 1150 A.D. It was utilized as a "house-mark". These were signs for marking a family's property, much like a brand or seal. Later it became an integral part of the Buonarotti Family crest and embodied their honor, wealth, and prominence.

During Michelangelo's childhood he saw the symbol everywhere, from the archway above the front door to the letters written by his family. As he grew older he shared in the symbol's heritage. To him it represented not only family and home, but also security and wealth. It was because of his reverence that he used its cloverleaf shape as a motif in many of his architectural designs.
