|Arms of the Minor Basilica of |
Saints Peter and Paul
From the Basilica's website:
This ancient papal insignia shows the crossed keys of Saint Peter and the pilgrim's canopy - theombrellino. For the new Lewiston Basilica, green was selected to represent both Saint Peter and the State of Maine. On this field appears the crook of a crozier ( a pastoral staff; a processional staff with the head in the form of a shepherd's crook) representing Saint Peter, The first Bishop of Rome.
