North Church Window, North Wall, Number 2 (east to west)

In Honor of the Eastport Boys in the Army and Navy 1917

In the central lozenge are two White Lilies (see window North Wall, No. 1; South Wall, No. 4). Given that the window honors soldiers and sailors, “boys” of the Great War, the flowers could indicate the sincerity of their devotion to their country. The upper arc has two Candles, flanking and therefore honoring the symbols of the “boys”. The top Fleur de Lis is another version of the lily, and represents the Trinity. The lower rectangle has a Greek cross (four sides of equal size) that can indicate the four points of the compass, honoring the world wide nature of military service.
