Origin/meaning

The whole shield is a variation on the coat of arms of the USA that was preserved by Abraham Lincoln, for whom the See City is named. In 1867 Nebraska became a state and the town ´Lancaster´ was chosen as her capital, but changed her name to ´Lincoln, to honor President Lincoln. The six-pointed star on blue honors the Blessed Virgin Mary, patroness of the Diocese.
