Christian symbols

  • Christian cross
    The Christian Cross, seen as a representation of the instrument of the crucifixion of Jesus, is the best-known symbol of Christianity.
  • Globus cruciger
    The globus cruciger (Latin, "cross-bearing orb"), also known as the orb and cross, an orb (Latin globus) topped (Latin gerere, to wear) by a cross (Latin crux), has been a Christian symbol of authority since the Middle Ages, used on coins, in iconography, and with the sceptre as royal regalia.
  • Chi Rho
    The Chi Rho (/ˈkaɪ ˈroʊ/; also known as chrismon is one of the earliest forms of christogram, and is used by some Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters chi and rho (ΧΡ) of the Greek word "ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ" = KHRistos = Christ in such a way to produce the monogram. Although not technically a Christian cross, the Chi-Rho invokes the authority of Jesus, as well as symbolising his status as the Jewish Messiah called Christ.
  • Wreath
    A wreath is an assortment of flowers, leaves, fruits, twigs or various materials that is constructed to resemble a ring.

  • Saltire
    A saltire is a heraldic symbol in the form of a diagonal cross, like the shape of the letter X in Roman type.
