And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. I Peter 5:4
The circle symbolizes eternity. The colors of gold and red remind us of the eternal love of God. Eternal life is ours by faith in the Savior, Jesus Christ. He that hath the Son hath life; These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God: that ye may know that ye have eternal life. I John 5:12,13 Keys open and close doors. The keys are marked with crosses. In Revelation 1:17-18 we read, Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

A crown of life is the reward of the faithful follower of Christ.

I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Rev. 3:11
