Huguenot Cross

The Huguenot movement began to take shape in 1517 with the publication of Martin Luther's 95 theses against corruption in the Roman Catholic Church - the only official Christian church in Europe at the time. His supporters became known as Protestants.
The Huguenot cross originated in France and is one of the more recognizable and popular symbols of the evangelical reformed faith and is believed to have been a sign of recognition among the French Protestants as early as the 17th century.
Every element of the cross has significance.
  • The 8 rounded points represent the 8 Beatitudes.
  • There are 4 Fleur-de-Lis.
    Singly the 3-petaled Fleur-de-Lis represents the Holy Trinity.
    The total of 12 Fleur-de-Lis petals in the cross symbolize the 12 Apostles.
  • The open space beneath the each Fleur-de-Lis is heart-shaped, the symbol of loyalty.
  • The Maltese cross is formed by a 4-petaled Lily of France and symbolizes the 4 Gospels.
  • The descending dove represents the Holy Spirit.
