"On top [left side], on a gold/yellow field symbolizing generosity, the monogram of the Holy Name of Jesus, IHS, in red, to symbolize the beginning of the evangelization of Zamboanga del Norte by the Society of Jesus in the 17th cent. The monogram is circumscribed within the figure of a fish, also in red, representing the rich marine and mineral sources of the province. Below the the fish figure are three wavy lines in blue, the heraldic symbol for water, to symbolize the Subanens, the original Lumad settlers of the province. On base, on a blue field symbolizing truth, strength and faith, the monogram of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to symbolize Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, the principal patroness of the Diocese." -Bishop Severo Caermare
