St. Vincent-St. Mary School Crest

The merging of Akron's first two Catholic schools, St. Vincent and St. Mary, is portrayed in the official crest of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School (STVM). Featured in gold on a green background are a cross, a torch, a plow and a sword. The cross symbolizes the religious foundation of the school. The torch, symbolizing learning, differs from traditional designs in that it is held by two hands, one representing each school. The plow and sword symbolize commitment to social justice and were part of the crest of the late Bishop Clarence Issenman, who directed the formation of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.
