Did you know that the The Jerusalem cross, is also known as the Crusaders' cross, and it is an heraldic cross or Christian symbol consisting of a large Greek cross surrounded by four smaller Greek crosses, one in each quadrant.
The simpler form of the cross is known as the "Crusaders' Cross", because it was on the papal banner given to the Crusaders by Pope Urban II for the First Crusade, and was a symbol of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.
The four smaller crosses are said to symbolize either the four books of the Gospel or the four directions in which the Word of Christ spread from Jerusalem through the four evangelists (Mathew, mark, Luke, and John).
Ideal for either home or office, housewarming or confirmation; it will make a most treasured gift and will serve as a constant reminder of the Holy Land.
