Saleeby Family Crest

Title

Saleeby Family Crest

Description

A copy of the Saleeby family crest. The dominant figure in the crest, the cross, stems from the origin of the name "Saleeby/Salibi," which derives from "saleeb," which means "cross" in Arabic. Family history says that the Saleeby/Saliba family was given this name in the early days of Christianity because of their efforts to build many churches. Other elements of the crest include: the bishop's crown
the olive branch, a symbol of peace
and the crossed swords.
