The symbol takes the form of a dove.  The feathering of the body of the dove forms a bursting pomegranate.  The seeds of the pomegranate are people.  The people at the bottom of the pomegranate have outstretched arms, as the seeds ascend the hands are raised.  At the base of the pomegranate the burst skin folds back to resemble two leaves.  In the bill of the dove there is an olive branch.



The symbol of the dove is found throughout the scriptures.  In the Song of Solomon it represents beauty and love.  In Matthew 10.16, Jesus finds the dove a symbol of innocence.  All four gospels record the appearance of the dove after Jesus was baptized. (Matthew 3.13-17, Mark 1.1-11, Luke 3.21-22, John 1.31-34)  Ever since, Christians have used the dove to represent the Spirit.

Olive Branch

The olive branch as a symbol of victory, hope, expectation of new life, and peace dates back to after the flood when the dove returned with an olive branch. (Genesis 8.11)  Thus, even without the olive sprig, the dove has been accepted as a symbol of the peace which comes from God.

As olive oil was used to soothe pain, anoint Kings and priests, anoint in healing, and as food, Christians used the olive sprig to symbolized the grace of God which gives peace.


The pomegranate has been used in biblical symbolism from earliest times.  The robes of the high priests were embroidered with pomegranates.  The spies returned with pomegranates as evidence of the abundance of the land.  (Numbers 13.23)  Pomegranates were carved on the pillars of Solomon's temple. In early Christianity the bursting of the fruit and release of the seeds became a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus bursting forth to new life from the tomb.  With its rind open, the pomegranate represents the abundance of God's gifts and blessings for us to enjoy.  It symbolized the fertile power of God's Word and the riches of divine grace.


The people represent the church as a community of faith.  The outstretched hands represent both reconciliation with God and reconciliation with one another.  Near the top of the pomegranate the hands assume the posture of prayer, praise and thanksgiving.


At the base of the pomegranate the skin folds back to form two leaves. These represent growth which is a life-long process.  (Ephesians 4.13-16)
