Thanks for the feedback!
Saint Cecilia is often associated with flute, organ, roses, violin, harp, harpsichord, and singing. I think this is because this is what she is shown with in her pictures. Why exactly I'm not sure but legend has it that when she was executed, she sang to God, praising him.
the harp is her symbol due to the fact that she was the patron saint of musicians. She is also associated with items such as the pipe organ.
