Cross Crosslet

This heraldic cross is made up of four Latin Crosses positioned at right angles to one another, with their tops pointing north, south, east, and west, representing the cross’ message reaching the four corners of the earth. The Cross crosslet, like the Jerusalem Cross, is a symbol for worldwide Gospel preaching, earning it the nickname Mission Cross. Another popular explanation is that it represents Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, the four evangelists.
