The Ave Maria Crown is a lovely Marian symbol, that is often used for the feast of the Holy Name of Mary.

Our Lady of the Pillar is a very special Marian title.  Our Lady bilocated to St James, from Jerusalem to Spain, where St James had a mission to convert the Spanish.  He was very discouraged by his efforts not bearing fruit.  He was deep in prayer by a river in Spain when Our Lady bilocated, giving him a wooden image of herself, holding the Child Jesus, it sat upon a Jasper pillar.  Our Lady asked St James to build a Church on the site in her honour and that it would stand until the end of time.
