The symbolic imagery:
PAX POTIOR BELLO (Peace is more powerful than war) entwines a dove bearing an olive branch. Francis is sitting at a meal with the Sultan.
Two African women are holding birds: a parrot symbolizing communication and an owl for wisdom. A church, pyramid,
and castle, desert, sea, trees and flowers symbolize Francis’ world. Camels, dolphins, a wolf and numerous other animals have come together in a “Peaceable Kingdom,” with “Brother Sun” and "Sister Moon" shining from a turbulent sky.
