The Celtic Cross meaning as a Gaelic symbol is worth exploring. There are hundreds of examples still in existence. Sometimes known as a Celtic sun cross, there are also thousands of memorials in the form of a Celtic cross headstone to be seen in many cemeteries around the world.

There are a lot of opinions about what the Celtic Cross represents depending on the region, superstitions and artistic representations. In Ireland it’s commonly associated with the eternal nature of God and the halo of saints and angels. In other settings people may tell you that the Druids created these as phallic emblems added to the cross to neatly disguise their true meaning to those unfriendly toward pagans.

It’s believed by some that the four arms of the cross represents the four elements, earth, air, fire and water. They also represent the four directions of the compass, North, South, East and West. And finally the four parts of man, mind, soul, heart and body. The horizontal line of the cross symbolizes earth and the vertical portion symbolizes heaven.
