"The sign of the fish came to Pharamaul nearly two thousand years ago, brought perhaps by an apostle of Christ, wrecked on the northern extremity of that tear-shaped island five hundred miles off the south-west coast of Africa.  The sign of the fish, a secret means of recognition for the persecuted Christians, stayed in the island of Pharamaul long after the religious teachings of the castaway had disappeared in the mists of time."
