The Jerusalem Cross (also known as Five-Fold Cross or Crusader’s Cross) is a heraldic cross dating back to at least the 11th century. Within 200 years, it had become associated with the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The symbolism of the one large and four small crosses is given (depending on the source) as the Five Wounds of the Christ, Christ and the four Evangelists or Christ and the four quarters of the world. In late medieval history, the Jerusalem Cross reappears as the Crusader’s Cross and was used for various Crusader states.
