The Jerusalem Cross is an ancient symbol that dates back to the Crusader period 11th - 13th century AD. This symbol was heralded around the city by the Holy Crusades on their path to conquering the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and has been emblazoned on the city ever since.
It is the official symbol of the Franciscans and of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, so it is especially meaningful to purchase a cross, take it to the Church and place it on the Stone of Unction where Jesus’ body lay.
The cross actually consists of five crosses, one large and four smaller in each corner. There are many interpretations to this arrangement; they may represent the five wounds that Jesus sustained on the cross or the large cross may symbolize Jerusalem and the four smaller ones, the four corners that Christianity has spread to around the world. In this sense, having a Jerusalem cross connects you not only to a place but to being part of a link in the chain of history.
