Diocesan Logo Explanation:

The oval or almond shape symbolism comes from ancient iconography representing the union of two circles that is the two natures of Christ, divine and human. 

The crozier indicates an episcopal body/territory  i.e. a diocese.

A Celtic cross indicates Christianity and it is in Wales; the crossed staves of the crozier and the processional cross are in gold suggesting the cross on the flag of St. David.  


The crossed keys of Peter indicating the union with the See of Rome, i.e. Catholic.
