Dr. Martin Luther's seal expresses his theology and his faith. He designed it himself.


In the center is a black cross indicative of Christ's dreadful
sacrifice on the cross for every sinner who ever lived.


The cross is in the center of a red heart, to show that faith causes love, joy,
and peace to grow in the human heart.


The red heart is on a white rose (Luther's favorite flower) because
white is the color of angels and blessed spirits.


The white rose is against a blue sky background to symbolize the
Christian's hope for the coming joys of heaven.


The seal is enclosed in a gold ring, showing that the bliss of heaven is unending.
