The ”Jerusalem Cross”, also known as ”Crusaders’ Cross”  is a Christian symbol consisting of a large cross surrounded by four smaller Greek crosses.

  It is the symbol of the ”Custody of the Holy Land”.

The middle of the big cross represents Jerusalem and stands for the Center of the Universe.

  

The five crosses together represent :

                          The five wounds on Jesus’ body when He was crucified. 

                          The hands, the feet and the wound underneath Jesus’ chest.

  The four small crosses represent  :

                          The four Gospels: Air, Earth, Water and Fire , together with 

                          The four directions in which Christ’s Word has spread around the world.
