Meaning of the Logo
The Greek cross is inscribed in a circular blue field which symbolizes the universe and the need for solidarity. The cross sustains and upholds humanity gathered in the continents represented by the five doves. The cross is the same colors as the doves signifying the Incarnation whereby God enters into human history and redeems it. The light which comes from the center of the design represents Christ who is the light of the world. The colors of the logo remind us that joy and peace are an integral part of the Jubilee celebration.
