The Cross of the Templar Knights. It is a Cross Pattee, which represents the four evangelists, the four seasons and the four elements. It was used by different religious orders: in red by the Templars, in white by the Knights Hospitaller, and in black by the Teutonic Order. It also inspired the Iron Cross, a Prussian award, and afterwards a symbol of the German army.
