IHS INITIALS ON A SHIELD CENTER: What does it mean? The Christogram IHS is a monogram symbolizing Jesus Christ. From Greek it is an abbreviation of the name ?????? (Jesus). In Eastern Orthodox Church the Christogram is composed with letters X, PI and X arranged into the cross. They are the first letters of one from two words in Greek language: Christ and Jesus Christ.

In the Western culture there exist the compositions: “IHS” and also “IHC” being the first letters (iota-eta-sigma) of the name Jesus in Greek alphabet: ?????? (?????? or IHSOYS with lunated sigma).
