ST. EDWARD SHIELD
SHIELD OF ST. EDWARD HIGH SCHOOL
The wavy lines at the bottom of the shield represent Lake Erie, the shores of which provide our geographic location in Lakewood, Ohio.
The classic book in the upper-left corner, bearing the Latin inscription "VERITAS," symbolizes our pursuit of academic excellence and truth.
The scepter represents that of St. Edward the Confessor, our patron. It also refers to Archbishop Edward F. Hoban, after whom the school is named.
The dove perched above the scepter suggests the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit in all of the school's endeavors.
The anchor of hope emphasizes the development and formation of Christian hope. The same anchor appears on the shield of the Congregation of Holy Cross.
The cross, superimposed on the entire shield, reminds us of our Christian beliefs and of our fundamental goal to live as Christ.
