Gothic churches have this flower windows and symbols but this one on the right is more like a combat shield.

Oh ... I can't say that I've seen the one on the right before, but if I had to guess ... I would say it represents the sun ... and the sun symbol is often used to represent God.

they were such strange, unexpected things to find in an otherwise completely unadorned, typically Franciscan church... such splashes of colour
