Emblem of Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar

The emblem of the Mar Thoma Church combines four sacred symbols; a cross, a wheel (chakra), a hand lamp and a lotus. The cross symbolizes the fact that Christ is at the center of the Church and its mission, and in the heart of the cross is a wheel (Ashoka Chakra), the emblem of India, symbolizing life. To the left of the cross is a hand lamp, an illustration of the Church’s motto, "Lighted to Lighten." On the right, is a lotus, the traditional Indian symbol of holy living.
