Arms (crest) of Diocese of Winona-Rochester

Official blazon


The Indian word Winona means "Fairest daughter of the tribe". To Catholics this description is at once fulfilled by Our Lady; and her fairest symbol, the rose has been placed on a lozenge (used instead of a shield to signify the arms of a virgin or a widow) to heraldically represent the name of the diocese and its See City.

The cross is a general Christian symbol.
