Flags with Cross
These flags represent the countries and regions where the cross is a significant symbol, either because it was used as a Christian symbol before independence, or because it remains in use today.
The cross has been a major symbol in many cultures since ancient times. It can be found on coins and seals from ancient Greece, China, and the Roman Empire. In medieval Europe, it became an emblem of military groups seeking to overthrow their rulers or protect themselves from invasion by others.
In Christianity, the cross is an important symbol of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on Calvary Hill. This belief dates back to at least the first century CE when St. Paul referred to Jesus as “the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2). Churches have used crosses for centuries to identify themselves as places where Christians gather to worship God and pray for forgiveness of sins.
