Arms (crest) of Diocese of Salina

Official blazon


The arms were designed after the change of name to Diocese of Salina.

The blue star came from the original coat of arms of the Diocese of Concordia and symbolizes the title of Maria as Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the dioceses Patroness. The heart symbolizes the new diocese Salina after 1945 and its new cathedral, which was dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The cross-partition in this shield is not really explained.
