The Maronite Patriarchal Assembly adopted this logo as the official logo of the upcoming Assembly.
On top there is the Coat of Arms of the Maronite Patriarchate to represent the universality and the unity of the Maronite Church.
The Antiochene Cross (three bar Cross) is in the center to represent the tree of life as envisioned by the Syriac writers. It also represents the unity between bishops, patriarch and the Holy See.
Under the Cross there is Christ's promise "I am with you to the end of time".
The color green represents life and hope.
The color gold represents God's benevolence.
The circle represents perfection.
The title "Maronite Patriarchal Assembly" represents the unity of Maronites throughout the world.
The circle rests on a base to represent the stability and depth of the Church.
