Our parish coat of arms can leave the casual observer with a few questions: What does all this symbolize? The following answers those questions.
A red cross that has each arm end in a ball, is known as a “cross pommel”; it is also known as the “Cross of St. Michael.” These arms that cross, honoring the titular patron of the parish, have been modified to be an inverted Latin Cross (as we would usually think of it, upside-down) to honor St. Peter, for whom the Sea City of the Diocese of St. Petersburg is named.
Tradition tells us that when St. Peter was to be crucified by the Romans he felt himself unworthy to die in the same way as Our Lord. Obligingly the Romans honored his wish and crucified him upside-down. Thus, by using the inverted Latin Cross Pommel, in red, we honor both St. Michael the Archangel, patron of the parish, and St. Peter, patron of the diocese.
The background of the shield is composed of wavy bars of blue and white to represent the clear waters, for which the city of Clearwater is named.
