While the red shield is an internationally-recognized symbol of Salvation Army service to those in need, the crest is a meaningful symbol of our church beliefs.
The Salvation Army crest was designed in 1878 when The Christian Mission changed its name to The Salvation Army and began adopting a military style with uniforms and military terms. Today, Salvation Army centers worldwide use the crest, translating the words on it into their own language.
This symbol has particular relevance for Salvation Army church members because it reminds them of important features of their faith.
