God's gift of human life is shown in the central figure, which symbolises a mother with unborn child. The human embryo and the human cell (zygote) are living and developing members of the human family.

The heart shape within the logo represents the love, care and protection that every human life – no matter what age – needs.

The circular theme symbolises the importance of family and community, and also that life is part of eternity.

The circle is enveloped by the protective shadow of the cross of Christ, which points to the saving act of God, through which people become members of his spiritual family. It is as we live under the cross that we learn about the sanctity of all human life, created and redeemed by God.
