The motif shows St. Peter, keeping watch over Folkestone Harbour. The design of St. Peter echoes the main statue of our patron saint in the Church and is positioned to reflect the location of the Church over-looking the Harbour. The light of Christ from the Church shines across the harbour, enhancing the light from the halo of St. Peter himself. The Harbour is depicted by its resident Seagulls, the Lighthouse and the Harbour Arm, from where so many vessels sailed for France or to war and these days the focus of much tourist entertainment. The Harbour Arm cleverly fuses with the halo of St. Peter. The stylised images of fish reflect the deep Biblical theme of Peter the Fisherman with the associated parables and are based on designs by the children of St. Peter’s School; whilst the old fishing boat, FE76, a model of which has been carried in the procession at the Blessing of the Fisheries, for many years, represents the Folkestone Fishery. It was to bring the Good News to the fishermen of Folkestone that St. Peter’s Church was founded, being named after the first Saxon Churches built around the harbour and long since lost to the sea. Their echoes are to be found in the keys of St. Peter, found on the wands of the Churchwardens, which are also processed through the harbour at the Blessing of the Fisheries each June. The positioning of the keys suggests the rise of Peter the Fisherman to be the Cornerstone of the Church and the ‘rock’ of the harbour and its industry.
