Just released: Official logo for Pope’s visit to Egypt

Aleteia - published on 03/31/17

“Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace”

VATICAN CITY — The official logo for Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to Egypt has been released by the Catholic Church in Egypt, the Vatican announced today.

The logo for the pope’s April 28-29 apostolic visit to Egypt reads, in Arabic and English: “Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace.”

The logo therefore has three main elements: Peace, the Pope, and Egypt.

Egypt is represented by the Nile River – a symbol of life – as well as by the pyramids and the Sphinx, which highlight the long history of civilization in this African country.

The Cross and Crescent Moon at the center of the logo represent the coexistence between the various components of the Egyptian people.

The white dove signifies peace, and a greeting common to monotheistic religions. The dove precedes Pope Francis to announce his arrival as a pope seeking peace in a country of peace.
