Shield Of The Trinity
White is the color used for the first Sunday of Trinity. So this
banner is made on a white upholstery material; white originates in undiminished
light and therefore implies the eternal presence of God.
|Translating this part of the symbol we read, "the FATHER is not the
SON; the SON is not the HOLY SPIRIT; the HOLY SPIRIT is not the FATHER.
The Shield is trimmed with gold metallic braiding and outlined with a green
The symbol for the FATHER is the Hand from a cloud. The hand appearing in various farms, is probably the most outstanding scripture symbol of GOD and FATHER (Exodus 15:16) (Psalm 48:10).
The symbol for the SON is the LAMB, standing with the banner of Victory, (No Longer Wounded) suggesting the victorious nature of JESUS' sacrifice.
The symbol for the HOLY SPIRIT is the Dove, the basis for this symbol is entirely scriptural and may be found in the story of the baptism of CHRIST, (Matthew 3:13-17) (Mark 1:9-11) (Luke 3:21-22) and (John 1 13-14) the nimbus on the Lamb and Dove suggest the Glory of GOD.
These symbols are made from various kinds of metallic material and are all trimmed with yarn or metallic cording.
There are many symbols for the TRINITY, three intertwining circles, the Triquetra and three circles or three fish in a circle. The triangle, the shamrock, the fleur-de-lis (sometimes used on the ends of the cross). All suggest the Trinity.
This banner was made of white upholstery material, the shield was made of green because the color for the Trinity season is green. The banner is finished with heavy green fringe.
