The Greek cross, which consists of one single horizontal piece and one vertical piece that are the same length, is one of the earliest crosses commonly used by followers of the Christian religion. These crosses can be plain and undecorated, or covered in patterns and designs.
The Greek cross represents the church itself, unlike the Latin cross, which is tied directly to Christ's crucifixion. Some of the earliest Christian tombstones - those found in Roman cemeteries - have this version of the cross on them. Therefore, the Greek cross is believed to have a greater historical presence when worn than the traditional Christian cross.
