The emblem is unique to Catholic Earthcare Australia. It is a central cross against four overlapping circles. The cross illustrates Christ’s burning love for his people. The pink circle represents faith, the green circle represents all living things, the brown circle represents the earth, and the blue circle represents the sky and waterways. The overlapping circles represent how faith, all living things, the earth, the sky and the waterways are all connected and grounded by Christ’s love.
