The symbol for Saint Agnes of Rome is the lamb, because her name means "pure" in Greek and similar for the Latin word Angus, which means lamb. When popes confer a portion of their power on bishops, they send them a woolen cloth called a pallium. These are woolen from the wool of the lambs consecrated on St. Agnes' Day.
