Logo remake for Blessed Sacrament Labuan parish


July 3 2020

ON the occasion of the parish feast day, Church of the Blessed Sacrament Labuan (BSL) unveiled its logo remake, which features new colors and meaning assigned to symbols.

The purpose to redefine the logo is to strengthen and reaffirm the identity of the parish.

The logo is represented by the map of Labuan, with the Chalice and Host which befits the name accorded to the parish – Corpus Christi, which is a visual representation of the boundaries of the parish.

The green colour denotes the sign of life and potential growth of the parish.

The Chalice, which is gold in colour, is the cup into which the wine and a little water is mixed, and at the consecration of the Mass, the wine becomes the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, who is truly present.

The anchor symbolizes stability. Rooted in the Word, the anchor represents the hope and steadfastness place in Christ, for the salvation of souls.

The white Host signifies simplicity and purity of heart and holiness, which all are called to strive for. The word “Host” comes from the Latin word hostia, a sacrificial lamb depicting Jesus as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (Jn 1:29, 36); and His body offered on the altar of the Cross, is given to us from the altar of the Mass. The initials HIS is the shortened form of the Greek spelling of Jesus.
