The word sacrilegious has its roots in the same word as sacred - sacrum "sacred object".
So, it is easy to figure that it has something to do with sacred objects. Here it means disregarding sacred or revered signs and symbols or showing strong disrespect to them.

From Latin sacer + legō (“steal something sacred”)
