Product Description

HISTORY

The Jerusalem Cross was first used as a coat of arms for the Latin kingdom in Jerusalem and is often referred to as the Crusaders Cross. The  Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem was a crusader state established by Godfrey of Bouillon in 1099 after the first crusade. The kingdom lasted nearly two hundred years.

The Jerusalem Cross became an Heraldic device and is described as a cross crosslet, cantoned with four crosses.

It is presumed that the four small crosses are symbolic of the four Gospels proclaimed to the four corners of the earth, beginning in Jerusalem; the large cross symbolizes the person of Christ.
