Christian warrior. The cross is eight-pointed and has the shape
of four arms joined together at their bases, so that each arm
has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the
crusades. The eight points symbolise the chivalric virtues; loyalty,
piety, frankness, braveness, glory and honour, contempt of death,
helpfulness towards the poor and the sick, and respect for the
church. The Maltese cross is the symbol of the Sovereign Military
Order of Malta. In recent centuries it has come to be adopted
as the insignia of numerous orders of chivalry, and appears on
the coat-of-arms of the Mecklenburg-Strelitz district. In Australia
the Maltese Cross is the state emblem of Queensland.
