The regional Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei (CBCMSB), at their recent conference in August 2020, adopted a new logo for both their Conference and for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia.

The purpose of a logo is to answer the question, “What do we stand for?”

It is to identify; and thus to give a stamp of authority. The logo will be the visual face of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference, reflecting meaning and purpose.

The meaning is about community — we the people of God — and purpose is what we stand for together — building God’s Kingdom. 

Both logos are circular, to emphasise that the Conference encompasses the whole nation/s, working for the wholeness of her peoples, protecting, caring for all life and being compassionate to all.

The soft curves symbolise Asian ways that are non-rigid and being approachable as bishops. 

The centrality of both logos is the cross encircled by the shepherd’s staff.

The cross stands for Jesus our head, our life, who connects us and makes us one people of God.

The shepherd’s staff symbolises the role of the bishop who, like Christ must lead by service, be a father to all, protect and rescue, and govern with integrity and wisdom.

The Regional Bishops’ Conference (CBCMSB) logo builds on the same elements to show oneness and solidarity as a Conference, yet introduces distinction of the three countries — Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei — represented by the three circles and distinct colours.

The colour yellow represents Brunei, red is one of the colours of Singapore, and blue is for Malaysia. Here too, the shepherd’s staff symbolises a journey of faith leading to Christ, the source and centre.

The secretariat for both the Conferences has moved to the Archdiocesan Pastoral Centre in Kuala Lumpur, and is no longer at Majodi. This is the new address and email:

Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei (CBCMSB) c/o Archdiocesan Pastoral Centre (APC), No. 5 Jalan Robertson, 50150 Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA
