Saturday Symbol: Knights of the Holy Sepulchre

This symbol was accompanied by the group name.
The symbol itself is actually a Jerusalem Cross also called the Crusaders' Cross. It is made up of 5 Greek Crosses which are said to symbolize the 5 Wounds of Christ or the 4 Gospels and the 4 corners of the earth (the 4 smaller crosses) and Christ Himself (the large Cross). The Knights of the Holy Sepulchre adopted it as their symbol.
