ST. JOSEPH PARISH, WASHINGTON
Gules, two bars Argent and in chief three fleur-de-lis Argent.
The new coat of arms is based closely on the coat of arms of George Washington. In the arms of the parish the colors have been reversed for difference and the three mullets or stars have been replaced with three fleur-de-lis, a symbol in heraldry used most often to represent Our Lady but one which is also used to allude to St. Joseph, her husband. For some time now the parish already employed the fleur-de-lis as a kind of logo or parish symbol.
