Mariner's Cross

The Anchored Cross, or Mariner's Cross, is a stylized cross in the shape of an anchor. It is a symbol which is shaped like a plus sign with anchor-like protrusions at the end of each arm, hence the name Anchored Cross. The symbol can be used to signify 'fresh start' or 'hope'.

The Mariner's Cross is also referred to as St. Clement's Cross in reference to the way he was martyred.
