Why a crescent moon?
The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted on the tilma of St. Juan Diego after he encountered Our Lady. There are many symbols inside the image that point to the books of Revelation and Song of Songs. In Revelation, a lady is described as being “clothed with the son, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.” The crescent moon is under her feet in the image of Our Lady signifying to the Meso-Americans that she is more powerful than the god of darkness, and it can symbolize her perpetual virginity, Immaculate Conception, and Assumption.
