The Rose Cross originated as a Christian symbol in the first century, as a symbol of the blood of Christ.
The rose and cross later was later adopted as the primary emblem of the Rosicrucians, an esoteric secret society that originated during the Renaissance.
The rose symbolized the redemptive power of the blood of Christ; the symbol as a whole illustrated the triumph of spirit over matter.
A deeper, hidden significance of the symbol is the union of the rose of Mary with the Cross of Christ, the union of the divine feminine with the divine masculine.
