The red cross from the Jamaican shield represents the Cross of Faith. One pineapple only is used to symbolise Jamaica's blessing of fruitfulness of the land. In the centre of the large cross, is a golden roundle with a red cross. The circle symbolises Infinity; the use of gold, Divinity, and the colour red is used litugically for Feast Days and signifies Christ's humanity. The title of the Cathedral, Blessed Sacrament, is symbolised on the circular wafer. The blue base of the shield, with its wavy lines, suggests the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, off the shores of Montego Bay.
