What kind of symbols do Mormons have?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) does not have any official symbol to represent the Church, only a simple logo of the name of the Church written in a Times font. The Church intentionally does not use the cross or other common Christian symbols to represent Jesus Christ, for several reasons that will not be discussed here. In Mormon churches and temples, paintings of Jesus Christ take the place of the cross. At times when the Church has needed to be represented by a pictorial symbol (such as on military graves), it is often an outline of the 3-spired facade of the Salt Lake Temple or of the statue of the Angel Moroni blowing a trumpet, which is found atop most temples. The auxiliaries of the Church - notably the Young Women and Relief Society organizations, do use official logos.

Despite not having a symbol to represent their faith, Mormonism is highly symbolic, and Mormon worship ritual is rich in symbolism. For example, the bread and water used in the sacrament (communion) is symbolic of the flesh and blood of Christ, who was the "Bread of Life" and the "Living Water". The immersion baptisms practiced by Mormons are symbolic of the death of the old person and the birth of a new person, of the cleansing and purity of the person being baptized, and of the person being covered by the Living Water - Christ. Mormons have a culture of symbolism and teaching in parables, believing that it is the best way for the Holy Spirit to guide the learner in interpreting the intended teaching at his or her own level.
