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 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
