The blue/azure field symbolizes fidelity and truth, the crucifix with intertwined lily, a loaf of bread on a plate, and the star – all depicted proper – are attributes of St. Nicholas of Tolentino, principal patron of the Diocese. To the left of the attributes, the blessing hand with brown glove, depicted proper, an allusion to Padre San Pio of Pietrelcina, secondary patron of the Diocese.
The green/vert field symbolizes hope and lush vegetation, the heraldic symbol for mountains in gold/or, symbolizing the rich resources of the Province of Surigao del Sur. The symbol alludes to the Diwata mountain range located in the Province. Beneath is the heraldic symbol for water in blue/azure, symbolizing the Philippine Sea, the body of water bordering the coastline of the Province.
