One of the most religious symbols is the Crucifix, which symbolizes the crucifixion of Jesus on the Cross. It reminds us of Jesus’ sacrifice for his men and religion, which is why it is most popularly worn mainly by Catholic Christians and Eastern Orthodox Christians as a holy icon.
This is another version of the Crucifix, but without Jesus being shown to be crucified. It is instead a cross with a circle behind to represent a halo ring – a version of the Cross that developed in England, Ireland, and Scotland during the 5th century. This kind of Cross is worn mainly by those with Irish or Celtic heritage.
This Orthodox Cross is a slanted cross that features three horizontal beams on one long vertical beam, where the first horizontal beam is very short, the second one is the longest, and the third one at the near-bottom is short and slanted. The slanted beam symbolizes the agony and struggle of Lord Jesus during His suffering on the cross.
Saint Peter Cross
The Saint Peter Cross is an upside-down cross that comes from the Catholic tradition, signifying the upside-down crucifixion of Saint Peter, one of the apostles of Jesus. Known to symbolize humility, this cross symbol has seen a modern revival today.
The Coptic Cross is an extravagant emblem, which has four arms all extended equally in the four directions; and each arm being divided at the end into three points. Thus, this beautiful decorative cross has 12 points, which symbolizes the 12 apostles of Jesus. This kind of cross is worn mainly by Coptic Christians.
This cross is a form of a heraldic cross surrounded by four smaller crosses. It was developed in the Middle Ages on the shields and family emblems of Europe’s noble families, symbolizing the Kingdom of Jerusalem.
The Templar Cross is a symbol of martyrdom and honour. It could be in the shape of a Christian cross with one arm being longer than the other three, or a medical cross with four equal arms. Whatever the shape, but the main element of the Templar Cross is that its arms are narrow in the center and flare out at the end.
