Ichthyses - The universal Christian Symbol in a Number of Forms
The Ichthys is alongside the cross as one of the most well-known symbols of the Christian faith. The symbol portrays the contours of a fish and is used by Protestants and Catholics as a universal symbol of their religion. Today, the Ichthys can be found in the form of pendants, print motifs on bags, note pads and more. In the LOGO Online-Shop you’ll discover the Ichthys in various forms which make for great gift ideas for Christians of all generations.
What does the Ichthys represent as a Christian Symbol?
The fish-shaped symbol picks up on the life story and religious significance of Jesus Christ in a number of ways. For one, the Ichthys is an acronym - a word made up of the beginning letters of the sentence "Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Saviour“ in Greek. As an early Christian symbol, the fish is also often found in the New Testament, for example in the sermons of Jesus Christ. Over the centuries, the symbol had lost its meaning, however since the 1970’s the symbol has been used again worldwide by Christians.
