The Alliance Emblem

The central symbol is a cross, triparted and frettered. This signifies the Orders of Catholic Knights coming together in their common allegiance to the faith The cross is interlaced with a circle signifying the world. The Orders come from different parts of the world and through their union play their part in evangelizing it.

The blue background denotes the devotion of the Knights to Our Lady. The colours of the cross are silver and gold. These colours, taken from the Vatican Flag, express the deep loyalty that the Orders possess for the person and office of the Holy Father and his lawful representatives.

The Motto

“Ubi Caritas et Amor

“Where there is charity and love

 there is God”


The Holy Father

When Pope John Paul II received the Alliance International Council in private audience he delivered the following address to them: “Although I welcomed you yesterday at the General Audience I thought it was necessary to greet you more personally and to express my gratitude for all the work you are doing for the Church, to thank you for your prayers, your loyalty to the Bishops and for following the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is very important that I should thank you, especially for your fidelity to the Church. I would like you to know of the great confidence which is placed in you and all Knights throughout the world. May God bless you and all your families. God bless you.”
