Knights Fidelium Foundation is a non-profit, non-government organization registered on May 2020 in England and Wales as a charity, which is limited by guarantee, with Company Number 12629048 and with registered office in London. Our primary objective as stipulated in the Memorandum and Articles of Association is to conduct outreach and charity programs with the poor, especially among the indigenous people of the Philippines.
The combination of the English word "Knights" and the Latin word "Fidelium" was inspired by the scriptures, which is the core of our objectives and purposes. Our foundation exists because of the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. "Fidelium" means "of the faithful", that is why Knights Fidelium or Knights of the Faithful specifically refers to the Lord Jesus Christ as Faithful and True.
And now I saw heaven open, and a white horse appear; its rider was called Faithful and True; he is a judge with integrity, a warrior for justice.
The logo of Knights Fidelium is comprised of three symbolic elements: Angelic Wings, Two-Edged Sword, and Three Keys.
The sublime nature of angels is usually depicted by their wings which connotes the ability to travel from one dimension to another. Since there are a variety of angelic orders and they don't have one specific and common form, and they can appear in various forms in our own physical dimension, we used the wings to symbolize the angels instead. Angels were created to watch over God's children therefore the wings in our logo represents power, security, care, love, protection, freedom, light and guidance. The same care and protection that we want to impart to the poor and the weak.
The sword has long been a symbol of leadership, courage and strength. But the most notable symbolism of sword is the power of creation itself, since to create a sword it incorporates all the essential elements of this world, namely: earth, air, fire and water. Combine all these elements and you produce one powerful creation.
However, the two-edged sword in our logo depicts primarily the Word of God, which is the Lord Jesus Himself, and as portrayed in the following verses:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The word of God is something alive and active; it cuts like any double-edged sword but more finely; it can slip through the place the soul is divided from the spirit, or joints from the marrow; it can judge the secret emotions and thoughts.
In Christian tradition, the sword represents righteousness, protection and justice that is why the scriptures mentioned the sword several times and angels are commonly depicted holding a sword.
In our logo you will find three keys which are chained in a ring, and the ring encircles the sword. There is a deeper meaning in the way we positioned the key ring that way, like the way the Lord Jesus has declared in this verse:
Jesus said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.
The three keys in our logo represent the Way, the Truth and the Life. And as the Lord Jesus explicitly stated, no one can go through the gates of heaven without those keys representing the Lord Jesus Himself. Similar to the symbolism in our logo: no one can get the keys of knowledge of heaven except through the sword which is also the Word of God.
If you look deeper in the scriptures, there are three major representations of the key: the Key of Knowledge (Luke 11:52), the Key of the house of David or kingdom of heaven (Isaiah 22:22, Matthew 16:19, Revelation 3:7), and the Key of Hades and Death or the bottomless pit (Revelation 1:18, 9:1, 20:1).
Therefore the three keys in our logo can similarly signify Knowledge, Life and Death.
Those who prove victorious I will make into pillars of the sanctuary of my God, and they will stay there for ever. I will inscribe on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which comes down from my God in heaven, and my own new name as well.
"...and may God give unto you in your life, that you may have His truth to aid you, like a shining sword, for to overcome your enemies; and may He give you Faith (for Faith containeth Truth as a scabbard containeth its sword), and may that Faith heal all your wounds of sorrow as the sheath of Excalibur healed all the wounds of him who wore that excellent weapon. For with Truth and Faith girded upon you, you shall be as well able to fight all your battles as did that noble hero of old, whom men called King Arthur."
