Arms (crest) of Diocese of Connecticut

Official blazon

Azure , a saltire argent; in the chief two swords , points uppward saltirewise of the second, pommels and hilts or; on an ineschutcheon sable in fess point a key and crozier in saltire of the thrid, and on a chief, also of the third three grapevines fructed and issuing from mounds proper.


The Saltire symbolises the ordination and consecration in Scotland of the frist diocesean (and first US Bishop) Samuel Seabury in 1784 in Aberdeen. The Sword are from the arms of the Diocese of London alluding to the the fact that in colonial times Connecticut was religiously under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London. The ineschuteon recalls Bishop Seabury's personal Arms. The Coat of Arms was granted by the College of Arms on 15 February 1924.
