Rotterdam diocese (provisional flag)

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Rotterdam will celebrate in 2006 its 50 years of existence. By Royal Resolution a coat of arms and flag was granted to the diocese; the arms will adorn its letters from 7 Jul 2004 on.
The shield consists of a green cross on a silver field, with in the first quarter a red grill. The grill is the symbol of St. Lawrence, who died as a martyr in a fiery demonstration of his Christian belief. St. Lawrence is the patron saint of the city of Rotterdam, which has green in its city-colors. He is also the patron saint of the cathedral church and of the diocese as a whole.

The diocese of Rotterdam has also had a new flag designed in the same colors as the shield of the coat of arms. By arms and flag the diocese demonstrates its own, official identity. After half a century it can no longer be considered a heritage of the diocese of Haarlem, to which it belonged until 1956.
Source: this site - reported by Hans van Heijningen. who observed:
The colors of Rotterdam are green - white - green - the colors were reversed, because the diocese of Groningen does have already the white cross on green (a reversal of the city-colors).
The design was by Mr. Daae.
