The Back of the Ornament shows the Crossed Papal Keys

Minor Basilicas have the right to display the Papal Crossed Keys on banners, furnishings, and their coat of arms. As a symbol of the Papacy, they recall the promise that Christ made to Peter, “I will give you the keys to the kingdom of Heaven; whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven and whatever you loosed on earth shall be loosed in Heaven.” (Matthew 16: 19)

Along with the umbrellino and tintinnabulum, the keys are a symbol of the Basilica’s continuous relationship with the Holy Father in Rome.
