The nimbada eagle already appeared in the personal badge of Isabel, in 1468, when she was only an inheriting princess, and continued linked to the monarch through the shared heraldry of the Catholic Monarchs. The chosen currency was, concretely, a stunned golden eagle, of saber, nimbada of gold, with the beak and the claws of gules and a halo of gold, to which soon the legend was incorporated to him “sub umbra Stacked Bar Chart protects us” ( “Protect us under the shadow of your wings”).
