Wearing the Jerusalem Cross isn’t just a trend, but also a deep symbolism, it is one of the most recognizable religious symbols in the world and is one of the central themes in Christianity.
Here are some interesting facts about it:
1- The central cross stands for Christ and the four smaller crosses stand for the 4 evangelists John, Luke, Mark, and Matthew.
2- The 5 crosses represent the five nations that figured in The Crusades: Great Britain, France, Spain, Germany, and Italy.
3- The large cross represents Christ as the strength at the center of Christianity and the smaller crosses as the 4 corners of the earth to which the faith spread.
4- The crosses represent the wounds that Christ suffered when He was crucified; the central cross for the wound on His side, and the 4 smaller crosses for the wounds on His hands and feet.
5- Crusaders used the Jerusalem Cross, displaying it on their papal banner from Pope Urban II. Godfrey de Bouillon, a leader in the Crusades, later adopted it as his personal coat of arms. He became the first ruler of Jerusalem after successfully driving out Muslims in the First Crusade (1099).
