There is no one symbol or message that the Year of Grace logo is intended to convey.  It is a bright and stylish image which, in looking at it, has many significant symbols and connections that can be drawn:

  • The cross
  • The sun
  • A circle that represents the infinity of God
  • The halo incorporating a cross that surrounds the head of Jesus in Eastern iconography
  • The host used at Mass
  • The monstrance used in Eucharistic adoration
  • A link with the artistic tradition of our Indigenous people
  • The earthen, ochre colours of Australia
  • A diversity of peoples and cultures, gathered into one community
  • A star-burst
  • Light

There may be other ways in which the logo speaks to people.
