Looks like a Lamb and Flag type which are fairly common.

Agreed, it's the "Lamb of God", and the inscription matches the central image:
ECCE AGNVS DEI
usually translated as "Behold, the Lamb of God" or "Here is the Lamb of God"

A nice complete example.

Didn't the old Cornish miners use a similar emblem?
