DIOCESE OF NIASSA

Denomination : Anglican

Arms (crest) of Diocese of Niassa

Official blazon

Gules, two Keys in Saltire wards downwards and outwards Or a Chief Argent thereon an anchor Sable.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on March 27, 2001 by the South African Bureau of Heraldry (the diocese being part of the South African Anglican church).

The diocese was created a division of the Diocese of Lebombo in 1978.

The diocese covers most of the north of Mozambique and the main congregations are along Lake Malawi, and the arms thus show a local fisherman on the lake.
