 Crosses like these are often associated with sky and or Pagan sun gods. The Cross Potent is a symbol adopted from ancient Mesapotamia. The cross potent with a circle was used as the sign for the Assyrian heaven-god, Anu. This cross is also called the Windlass, a term linked with it from back in the Middle Ages.


This "coptic cross" is associated with the coptic new year (nayrouz) which is celebrated on a Sunday in early September during the Roman Catholic liturgy. NOTICE THE SWASTIKA in each corner of the center cross! (Highlighted in yellow)
