The Coat of Arms of Pope Paul VI

In the conclave of 1963 electing him, Giovanni Montini was the only one of  80 cardinals–the largest number ever assembled–to have the fleur-de-lis emblazoned in his coat of arms on a field of red. The cross keys and tiara, symbol of the papacy, are  present in every papal coat of arms.  

Montini, his family name, literally means, mountain, or coming from the mountain, which suggests the arrangement of the six symbols under the fleur-de-lis.
