Cross moline[edit]

This page is way off. The "cross moline" is so called in French sometimes, but in English heraldry is never called an "anchored cross" and at any rate it is not a religious symbol but (unlike every other cross, which is) is supposed to represent a millstone. --Daniel C.

It is considered one of the earliest Christian symbols, and this can be seen in excavations from the Catacomb of Priscilla and the Catacomb of Callixtus in Rome. See this link for more info. Viriditas (talk) 11:53, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
