Default Looking for old sticker Sant Ambroeu

Don't know where to put this message but I am looking for an old sticker that was on my Fiat 8V Zagato in the 1955 Mille Miglia. It was also on the Ferrari of Enzo Pinzero who was in a Ferrari 750 Monza in that same year.
Has anybody ever seen this badge ? Do you think it is indeed a badge of Sant Ambroeus

This seems no more possible to get and if you find it than it must be so old that it will deteriorate. With this picture however and information on the size it must be possible to have it copied at a shop that makes stickers..

You have a very special car.

Red face St. Ambrosius / St Christoffel

I did some research in your question and found that it could be Ambrosius, lived from 339, born in Trier and died in 397 in Milan. He was the saint for the bee-keepers...
More likeley I think, it is St. Christoforus, because on the sticker he has a young three in his hand, that is typecally for Christoforus, the saint for travelers and (later) for motorist
