The crest is designed in the form of a St. Andrew's Cross with an insignia in each of the four corners. The X at the centre, the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, is a traditional symbol for Christ. Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28-30. The oval shape of the United Church Crest is derived from the outline of a fish, a symbol of identity by early Christians. The initials of the words Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour spell the Greek word for fish.

The United Church is the largest Protestant denomination in Canada with a rich history closely entwined with the development of Canada itself. We believe a United Vision is serving, friendly, flexible, inclusive, welcoming, faithful, compassionate, justice-seeking, caring, peace-seeking, tolerant, and innovative. The vision of the United Church of Canada involves ministry in our own United Churches and in work with partners across the country and around the globe. In the four corners of the United Church crest are symbols, three of which are particularly associated with the three communions, Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian, that united to form The United Church of Canada in 1925.
