The three outer circles are lettered Pater ('father'), Filius ( 'son') and Scts Sps (Sanctus Spiritus - 'holy spirit'), with Deus ('God') in the middle. The outer ribbons have non est ('is not') in them, while the inner ribbons est ('is'). It is meant to demonstrate the triune nature of the Godhead.
