Official blazon
English blazon wanted


The arms quarter the arms of the Archdiocese of Madang with the personal coat of arms. The Bible symbolizes the leadership, speeches and prophets of the Church. The pig symbolizes the traditions of the local people. It is a very important animal in local culture. A piece of bamboo and a piece of rope representing the service and sacrifices of a simple worker. Those two symbols simply mean servant and leadership.
