INSIGNIA OF THE PATRIARCHAL SEE OF THE
OLD HOLY ROMAN CHURCH OF THE ENGLISH RITE

The Insignia consists of a crossed key and sword, the symbols of spiritual and temporal sovereignty present also in the Patriarchal arms, joined together with the pallium. Along both the key and sword is a sceptre of three lilies, the symbol of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Patroness of the Patriarchal Household (Court of Saint Mary of Walsingham). Over all this is the umbraculum, a symbol of Cardinalatial privilege. The Insignia is also seen in the flag of the Patriarchal See, seen below, which may be used by all in the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church. The flag consists of three vertical bands in green, white, and red. In the central band, displayed on a red Saint Stephen's cross, is a combined shield of the greater arms of the Patriarchal See displayed with the insignia of the Patriarchal See and with a smaller inset shield displaying the emblem of the Patriarch.

 

EMBLEM OF THE PATRIARCH OF SAINT STEPHEN

The emblem of the Patriarch is identical to the insignia of the Patriarchal See with the addition of the cardinalatial galero. It is also seen in the flag of the Patriarch, the flag of the Patriarchal See, and the greater arms of the Patriarchal See.
