This symbol is a combination of the traditional Christian cross with a ring surrounding the intersection of the four arms which are equidistant from the center. According to Christians, the Celtic cross has all the symbolism and meaning of the cross on which Christ was crucified. The attributes include hope, life, honor, faith, unity, balance, transition, temperature, ascension and navigation. However, the followers of the Celtic-based Pagan traditions believe that the Celtic cross symbolizes the four cardinal directions (North, South, East, and West of the compass), the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water), and the meeting place of all the divine energies. The Celtic cross is widely used today, in jewelry and other ornamentation.
