The Armenian Cross

Christianity followed Paganism in Armenia, therefore it is not surprising that the Armenian Cross mirrors some of the designs favored in those days: vines and floral swirls.

The winged Armenian Cross has a busy design where the lower shaft is usually just slightly longer than the arms and top, and each member is always seen with the distinctive double tips.

The Armenian cross is symbolic of life in these ways, the crossbars intersect at a midpoint that signifies the four corners of the world meeting at life's center. The "empty" Armenian cross (as opposed to the Catholic crucifix bearing the body of Jesus) emphasizes Jesus' victory over death the appearance of vines and grapes as decorative motifs in the Armenian cross symbolizes the life generated from the cross which was otherwise an instrument of death.
