Martin Luther's Seal

Luther's seal in stained glass the seal of Dr. Martin Luther, Luther's Rose Luther's seal carved in wood

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.
