This crest is familiar to Loreto Pupils
worldwise. It is surmounted by the words
“Maria Regina Angelorum”
Which indicate the patronage of
Our Lady. Queen of Angels.
The emblem is rich in symbolism:
The Cross - sign of our Salvation;
The Sacred Heart - Source of the infinite love of
Jesus for each one of us;
The Heart of Mary - Our human model and
The anchor - symbol of hope
This symbolism is summed up in the final scroll:
“Cruci Dum Spiro Fido” “Throughout my life,
I shall place my hope in the cross”.
