The Official Seal
The official seal of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) was adopted in 1985. At first glance it looks like a cross. But, it is intended to capture some of the important emphases of the Reformed tradition.
The seal is comprised of the symbol, the basic components of which are Cross, Scripture, a descending Dove at the upper part of the cross, and Flames on either side of the lower part of the cross, and the name of the denomination, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), encircles the symbol. It was designed by Malcolm Grear and Associates.
The Cross represents the incarnate love of God in Jesus Christ, and his passion and resurrection. Because of its association with Presbyterian history, the Celtic cross was chosen.
