About the St. Mark's logo
Check out our new logo (or brandmark) and its meaning on our About Us page.
The four-quadrant cross is based on the traditional Quadrate cross and echoes the brickwork and wood crosses behind our altar.
Green is the liturgical color of Epiphany and the Sundays after Pentecost. Blue is the liturgical color of Baptism and Advent and is symbolic of life and water. Just as we need water to live, we receive new life through the water of our baptism into Christ.
