The Pacifica Crest

Pacifica Crest


Pacifica’s motto is “Gratia et Veritas,” which is Latin for Grace and Truth.

Color of Our Crest

The color blue symbolizes peace, calm, stability, harmony, and loyalty. For the Hebrews, the color blue represented holiness. In Christianity, the color blue resonates the hope of heaven and the pursuit for truth.

Crest Symbols

The Bible

The Bible symbol represents the living Word of God; the cross is a sign of the crucifixion, the great price Jesus paid for our salvation.

Laurel Wreath

A sprig of laurel has its origins in antiquity; since before the days of Christ, the laurel wreath has been associated with triumph, specifically athletic victory. This symbol reminds us of our commitment to excellence.

The Lion

The lion is known for its dauntless courage and impressive strength. In Christianity, the lion represents Christ.


The “fleur-de-lis,” or flower of the lily, has long been held as a symbol of purity and light. This symbol reminds us of our commitment to Christian values and a life devoted to God.
