Another example of the "non-female" use of the lozenge in Aragonese heraldry.

Nice design!
Curious re: the saltire? crossed batons? something else? behind the lozenge...

This link explains something of the background of the Archdiocese, and says the following about the CoA:

The arms of the Metropolitan Archdiocese feature a patriarchal or archdiocesan cross, a lozenge with the arms of Catalonia (four red stripes on a gold background), an x-shaped cross and a Greek Cross – the former for St. Eulalia, indicating the instrument of her martyrdom, and the latter for the Holy Cross, as Barcelona’s Cathedral is named for both.
