Summary

Description

Basic abstract equal-armed cross design with circle at center and surrounded by 4 nails.

Called a "Coptic" cross by Rudolf Koch in his The Book of Signs (Dover); may not be prominent in Coptic Christian symbolism in this form.

Apparently sometimes the arms of the cross extend through the circle (dividing it into four quadrants).

Date (PNG and PostScript); 2006 (SVG)
Source Based on out-of-copyright design by Rudolf Koch (died 1934).

Vector version of original PNG Image:Coptic-Cross.png, which was a quickie image to fill a gap in the Cross page. PNG was copied to Commons from en:Image:Coptic-Cross-so-called.png (uploaded on 17 October 2005).
