The logo of the World Apostolate of Fatima is the official symbol of the Association. It is used all over the world and although it may assume little changes here and there in terms of design, it keeps its original elements from when it was first created. It is a symbol that, in its essence, shows that peace can be achieved through prayer as prophesied by Our Lady of Fatima. The blue and white colours of the logo indicate the liturgical colours used for the Mother of God.
Two doves form praying hands. They hold the Rosary which World Apostolate of Fatima members pray daily.
Besides, the doves are also the symbol of peace. They have therefore a special link with the Message of Fatima. In fact, as a side note, on many occasions, white doves have flown from the sky to the base of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in her shrine and remained there for hours on end, even when the statues were being carried in procession. The World Apostolate of Fatima’s symbol of the doves emphasizes therefore the intervention of God in the human history, which was done in Fatima through the apparition of the Most Holy Virgin.
They are surrounded by the Scapular of Mount Carmel, which is the sign of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. On October, 13th, 1917, during the miracle o the sun, Our Lady showed herself in Fatima as Our Lady of Mount Carmel, according to Lucia’s words.
The Latin words “Orbis Unus Orans” which accompany the logo mean “One world praying”. This is to say that a world that prays together will be a world united and in peace. If we fulfil the requests of Our Lady for prayer and penance, we will surely experience the fulfilment of her great promise: “An era of peace to humankind”.
